switching informaion

Other products that monitor network equipment provide additional information, like port/VLAN bindings, MAC address/port bindings, ARP bindings, etc.  I realize that since everything in an LM datasource must be a metric, at least 2 of those would be impossible, except perhaps via leveraging propertysources.  I think it would be very useful to include this feature as not having it is a competitive disadvantage against other products in this category.  I am going to try to at least start with the VLAN binding one since that can be a datasource.  Will have to think about how the others might work in practice.
