If it were possible to put a country hierarchy in there I would be happy
for Catalyst to include some machines in the list for .nz :


for example.

I think this might in general be a better way to go.  Slightly more
accurate timekeeping perhaps if we aren't using round-the-world pings,
and I don't see that it would make the debconf quizzing for ntp setup
_that_ much harder for naive users.  There could also be a fallback to
the top-level pool.ntp.org which all might then participate in.
