Detailed Description

Simplify request processing A group of handlers intended to simplify certain aspects of processing a request for a MIB object.

These helpers do not implement any MIB objects themselves. Rather they handle specific generic situations, either returning an error, or passing a (possibly simpler) request down to lower level handlers.
