One of the problems I see is that there are a few different proposals
for "next generation time" protocols beyond NTP.  Unless a project
member has an explicit requirement for one of them, it doesn't seem like
we should go out of our way to pick one of them.  If someone is
especially interested in implementing one of them in their spare time
though, they're more than welcome.
