Just posted the latest, and I hope last, set of output files from the
Printer Provider Proxy Prototype.  There are no defects that I know of
in the mapping from SNMP to CIM.  


My To-Do list for this code is included here so you can see what has
been done recently and what remains.  If you find something that is not
included here, PLEASE report it.  

Things Remaining to Do to the Printer Provider Proxy Prototype

snmpcli.py: Add code to name OIDs not found, translate numeric OID back
    to prtXxx SNMP name.  


calcvalues.py: Add code to parse sysUpTime in all the various formats 
    from various SNMP dump utilities.

doc: Add section on how to use for comparison between printers or
    of MIB dumps.  In general, what else can you do with this thing?  
    bash files that direct the testing are trivial to adapt.  
DONE 20090427

calcvalues.py or bins.ini: Channel.Type wrong, always zero.  
DONE 20090428

prov-test-analyze-log.sh: Doesn't show Channel.Type.

snmpcli.py: if sysname is null, reports as OID not found instead of 
    empty string.

calcvalues.py: Calculate OperatingStatus to "In Service" if there are no

    alerts outstanding on the subunit.  Alg looks okay, but may be
    the wrong data item.
