--- Comment #1 from Paul J Murphy <paul at inetstat.net> ---
Some additional motivation / justification for this modernisation.  The IETF
NTP WG's best current practice draft discourages the use of 3 and even 4
sources.  It is defining best current practice to use the automatic "pool"
configuration command (or equivalent), with more than 4 sources (4 instances of
the command results in more than 4 sources).

Network Time Protocol Best Current Practices

This might still be at the draft stage, but this particular issue is one where
it is entirely safe to be ahead of the final standard / recommendation.
