do not want to enable the set functionality for whatever reasons they
believe in. However, this can be accomplished easily by setting to
disable by default and only allow enablement if customers wish to
However, from an implementation and resource investment perspective,
it is not a significant effort (few days worth of development resource)
since there are at most 10 object elements that are needed to be
supported for write access.

Some of you might recall, that I have talked about SNMP set() functions
previously in F2F meetings, and my take would be that we do not
initially implement set functions, until somebody proves they are needed
and is willing to invest resources for that.
