[ntp:questions] System status word not accessible via libntpq?

I'm writing some code to use libntpq to query the local NTP daemon, and 
it looks as though the libntpq interface throws away the System Status 
Word (with Leap, Source, Count, Event fields). I think this is the third 
argument sixth argument to doquery(), usually named 'rstatus'. I would 
especially like to see the Event field, to display in a separate 
application what the local NTP is up to.

Any advice on how I can get at this status word?
