Speaking of configuration tools, we also need to have a look at KDE's 
date/time dialog. Currently, there is an option to enable NTP support, but 
1. it doesn't notice that it's already enabled by system-config-date or 
Anaconda :-(, 2. it's quite lacking in options (you can only enable/disable 
it and pick one server (not even a list of servers), no other options), and 
3. it obviously doesn't support Chrony at this time.
