Support for automatic time sampling over NTP

Support for automatic time sampling over NTP has been added into main sources tree. Now client tries to check whether there is ntpd running on current machine. And if it’s not, creates a time sampling thread in order to maintain better accuracy of timestamps which are given by GetAdjustedTime() function.

Now client supports automatic selection of optimal source of time between NTP, median of p2p clocks and system time.

Win32 binaries for current snapshor are available here:–v0.5.3-42.7z/download

P.S. Seems as obvious improvement, I’m guessing that Satoshi had the same thought.
