One of my action items from the Albuquerque meeting is to refine and
justify the new objects in the Input Switching Group. Here is my first
crack at refining these objects:

prtInputNextIndex OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX Integer32
MAX-ACCESS read-write
MIN-ACCESS read-only
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The value of prtInputIndex corresponding to the input subunit
which will be used when this input subunit is emptied. A value
of zero(0) indicates that auto input switching will not occur
when this input subunit is emptied. A value of (-1) means other.
The value (-2) means 'unknown' and specifically indicates that
an implementation specific method will determine the next input
subunit to use at the time this subunit is emptied. The value
(-3) means input switching is not supported for this subunit."

Based on the new description above, I am once again of the opinion that
the prtInputAutoSwicth object is uneccessary. Did I forget anything
from the discussion Friday afternoon? Any other comments?

Thanks,
Angelo
