I think the patch to accept NTPv4 replies could be enabled by default,
no need for a new option. I'll look into it more after 1.25 is

But I'm not sure about the other two options, they really seem
dangerous. Lowering stratum may break loop detection and accepting
time from a packet which says it's unsynchronized looks like a
horrible hack, why is it needed only in the acquire module?

I assume there is no chance to fix the other software instead?

Which of the three conditions fails? Perhaps it's the same problem as
in the acquire module?
