  Ah.  *That* vendor.  My suggestion is to throw away their equipment
and buy equipment that works.  Barring that, file a bug with them, and
tell them their product is retarded.

  If you *have* to use their equipment, write a module to do that
re-mapping.  It should be 30-40 lines of Perl, or about 200 lines of C.
