Hi Richard.  We (IBM) also have a need for the same detailed mapping  
information but from other services on the BMC.

Right, so where we have shared interest I think is how this service works  
and exports its information to _any_ BMC service (not just bmcweb -  
exporting the mapping information via external interfaces is less of a  
priority over here).  Can you say any more about this service?
