	This one is a big one for me.  4.2.0 fixes a lot of outstanding 
problems for a lot of sites, and if we're going to have this in base, 
then we need to keep fairly up-to-date with it.

	Do we not already have a person within the FreeBSD project who is 
responsible for tracking NTP development and keeping the NTP code 
within FreeBSD in sync?!?  I'm not a kernel hacker, but I'd be 
willing to step up to the plate to be a coordinator for this effort, 
if there's not already someone doing this.

	I'm a contributor to, and I use FreeBSD systems, 
including some running 5.x.  I know plenty of people who are much 
more knowledgeable on this subject than I am, but if there's no one 
doing this very important job, then I'm willing to take that on.
