Yeah, I choose to cross-compile for my Sun, 40MHz takes waaaayyy too long!

Yeah, I'm not entirely sure myself. Whether it gets integrated into LCDd
or not, I don't think it's too important atm, until someone really
understands it. For the time being, I'll write the client for the
JetDirect in Perl and use the Net::SNMP module to do the all the SNMP
stuff. I think it would probably get integrated into the lcdproc client
bundle to display stats from an SNMP device of our choice...

OK, I'm pro-XML! That seems simple enough...
