Re: snmpconf a new issue: off-the-box operations

Wayne, I replied to this in responding to Pablo's original message.
Remember my concern was mostly in regard to the capabilties table which
is clearly out of scope for this 'out-of-box' function.

With regard to other areas of the system that do 'proxy' I like you feel
this should be a specialized local function. The cost of including such
facilities in the standard in my view makes it more complicated than the
benefit it produces.
