A lack of backward-compatible and consistent interfaces only hurts us,
and where it counts too: the view of linux as a dependable deployment
vehicle (eek, I should be in marketing) instead of a "hackers toy" of some
sort. The time-synchronization folks don't even want to support Linux
anymore, because the published interfaces (to adjtimex in this case) just
change out from under them at a whim. Maybe it's not as bad as they
claim, but regardless, freebsd gets their knod instead.
