[Nut-upsuser] Support for APC Smart-UPS X 3000

Hi all,

I am completely new to NUT and setting up a UPS shut down in Linux. I am 
looking at buying a APC Smart-UPS X 3000.  When I look this device up in 
the compatibility list this specific model is not listed, only a generic 
entry for "Smart-UPS".  It says to use the *apcsmart* driver.  The 
legend shows this as "protocol based on reverse engineering".  What does 
this mean in terms of using the driver? Can I expect to get this working 
to shut down my Debian servers gracefully or is it a bad idea to use a 
UPS with only this driver?

Have users on this list experience with a similar Smart-UPS?  Is it 
going to be compatible with NUT or should I be looking for a different 
UPS that is supported with one of the other drivers?
