Beware of the fuzzy semantic here... This code is definitively 
unstable:look at the amount of change in the 2.3.x branch, including at 
least two major changes. And for exactly the same reason, it can no be 
considered as unmaintained.

I just meant I never found someone telling me he was able to make it 
work out-of-the box. Especially when this code relied on an external 
knowledge database (SNMP dictionnary and models), without any 
coverage/quality testing. This isn't the case anymore, but we still 
didn't updated the documentation.

For all those reasons, I'd rather qualify this feature as 'basically 
working, but barely usable without external help currently'.
