No. All this work to get two different time-reporting modes properly

you fix the code so that chrony *doesn't* depend on the ntpd support,
the result won't be a hairball.

Working on it.

I know. I put those lines in so that when the basic regression tests
fail, I can easily find where to bisect from.
