Current tasks that I see are:
* Filling out the MIB.
* Implementing the rest of the packet types.
* "UI", aka. allowing the daemon to use different communication channels
with the master agent, expanded logging, etc.
I believe it is realistic.

The first two are dependent on my understanding of how SNMP/AgentX
works, the potential blocker I previously had *just* clicked yesterday
(how sequences are implemented). This means I need to rethink the
architecture slightly, but I'm pretty sure I know how to make that work.
Aside from that the major issues are my inexperience in implementing
this type of software (something that solves itself as I look for
information and do tests against the master agent), and the mismatches
between what the NTPv4-MIB wants and what data I can get from mode 6.
The size of the latter problem is currently unknown.
