Epilogue: Harry Lewis - IBM Printing Systems

While I have solicited for a standard way to register for traps and mentioned
that this would aid in use of RFC1759 traps, I do not subscribe to the concept
that lack of this will or should effect progression of the printer MIB in any
way. Lack of a standard method for registering for traps is an overall SNMP
concern, so let's take SNMP back to the beginning if we're going to think that
way. RFC1759 just defined traps, we did not invent them.

I had a modem failure while away, so it may appear that I'm responding to some
old mail (I am). Perhaps this issue has already been resolved.
