snmpconf PM MIB issue #7 - pmPolicyAdminStatus name




Issue #7 suggests that the pmPolicyAdminStatus might be confused with
ifAdminStatus and that instead we should change it to
pmPolicyEnabledStatus.

I think that AdminStatus has become an idiom in
SNMP MIBs for the read-write administratively desired state of
something. I found wide use of this idiom:

rfc1473 pppIpConfigAdminStatus
rfc1474 pppBridgeConfigAdminStatus
rfc1604 frPVCConnectAdminStatus
rfc1657 bgpPeerAdminStatus
rfc1658 charPortAdminStatus
rfc1695 atmVplAdminStatus
        atmVclAdminStatus
        atmVpCrossConnectAdminStatus
        atmVcCrossConnectAdminStatus
rfc1747 sdlcLSAdminState
rfc2051 appcCntrlAdminStat
        appcTpAdminStatus
rfc2108 rptrPortAdminStatus
etc...

(www.mibcentral.com has a search facility that's helpful for this
search)


I think we should stick with the current name.
