[time-nuts] wifi with time sync

We have a double issue here:

1) It’s a problem because “not enough information was given"

2) It’s a problem because “we are talking about it to much”

Sorry, but there is absolutely no way at all both of those criteria can
be met by me.  

I do believe that WiFi time protocols are an on topic item for TimeNuts. 
Given our ability to wander off topic for weeks on some subjects, it is
a bit unclear just where those bounds actually are. 

I also believe that ping data is one way to come up with an upper bound on 
just how awful WiFi timing can be.  If others have a similar single shot measure 
of WiFi round trip that can be run on a wide range of devices, I’d certainly be just 
as interested in that.
