Strictly speaking you can't do that.  It's the PM's decision whether
we want to drop the feature or change the schedule.  We're pretty informal
here, but you need to know where those lines of authority are, because
many other projects (especially in corporate-land) aren't.

But, speaking in Mark's absence, I'm OK with slipping it.  It's not
like Classic had this right; their snmpd was broken by design (not
RFC-conformant) and in fact its author urged me to remove it.

I think our support can wait for 1.1.  Possibly Mark might do an
override on this, but I doubt it.
