Net::NTP is a small perl module to query an NTP (Network Time Protocol)
time server for the current time. It exports a single method
(get_ntp_response) and returns an associative array based upon RFC1305 and
RFC2030.  The response from the server is "humanized" to a point that further
processing of the information received from the server can be manipulated.
For example: timestamps are in epoch, so one could use the localtime function
to produce an even more "human" representation of the timestamp.
