Thanks for the pointer.  HPOV claims their layer 2 discovery is independent
of vendor-proprietary technology.  The wishful-thinking I referred to
was more about finding someone with enough cycles and perl chops that they
might attempt to integrate the Bell Labs stuff into netdisco (as opposed
to wishful-thinking that L2 discovery is possible without an L2 discovery
protocol, though I have to admit to having my doubts).
