You've got a point. There is also a point being made here that
people trust Henning's ability to write something secure and useful.
While it is ultimately his desire to write what he wants, a few
hundred people asking for a particular feature written by someone
might change the way that programmer thinks.
I'm amazed at how fast Henning as been able to write several things
in the past, and certainly will continue to be. Just remember that
both sides of the argument have some valid points.
If you want him to write something in particular, there's always the
option of sending him ample loads of Beer! bgpd was written in a few
days, certainly ntpdq could be written so long as you get him drunk
enough not to care :)
