NTP Release Update Check


Many people run a version of ntp that is Very Old.


Implementation choices

The client (ntpd and/or ntpq) could send a very short dynamic page request with the version number, the XML of which tells the client if there's any newer stable release as well as if there are high-priority reasons to update from the given version.

We'd also have an html wrapper presenting the same info in human readable form, with a few more links.
