snmpconf issue #1: language versioning
Options if we want to specify versioning:
1) don't. (ie, leave things as they are). I think everyone agrees
that at least some form of versioning statement should be made.
2) Register the language version as a capabilities statement in the
capabilities Table, and define a version OID elsewhere in the MIB
dictating that this OID should be registered there if it supports
this version of the document. If future modifications were made to
the language in an incompatible way, a new version of the OID
should probably created. Because of this, I'd recommend having the
OID created be a root of an individual base such that we have
something ending in ....pmVersionNumber.version1
3) Have a scalar (somewhere) indicate the language version number
supported by the application.
My opinion: #2 is the right way to go (plus it gives us a good example
to use for the capabilities table).
