Paul,

Very good suggestion! I will change finSupplyCurrentLevel as follows
prior to submission to the IETF next week.

finSupplyCurrentLevel OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX Integer32
MAX-ACCESS read-write
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The current level if this supply is a container; the
remaining space if this supply is a receptacle. If this
supply container/receptacle can reliably sense this value,
the value is sensed and is read-only; otherwise the value
may be written by a control panel or management
application. The value (-1) means other and places no
restrictions on this parameter. The value (-2) means
unknown. A value of (-3) means that the printer knows there
is some supply or remaining space."
DEFVAL { -2 } -- unknown
::= { finSupplyEntry 8 }
