Because it's easier to find stuff by working from the TableName; there's
much less ASN.1 understanding required and my ASN.1 is ofttimes weak.
Also, it lets the <foo>.ok state dump have a label indicating namespace
so I don't need to worry about globally unique names, only relatively
unique. (Does ASN.1 actually require global uniqueness?)
So I have an mrtg.ok which contains:
