Nothing _wrong_ per-se.  Just not the most accurate time daemon, mostly 
because it doesn't need to be for un-connected or intermittently connected 
machines.  The README mentions possible 10's of millisecons of inaccuracies 
over modem connection speeds.  It's my understanding that other time daemons 
can give you accuracies much better than that.

The English language has too many nuances for the phrase above... "nor is it 
probably the best package" was only ment to indicate that there is probably 
at least one package that is better.  Of course "better" is a subjective 
term.  For my case, chrony is "better".  

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
