All the varbinds will be processed, and the results returned in the same
order as the original request.

The varbinds that are relevant to a particular subagent will be forwarded
to that subagent. Those that are registered within the main agent will
be handled internally.

The master agent stiches everything together in the right order,
before returning the response.

I'm sorry - I don't have the time to explain the inner workings of
the agent. Please just believe me that Everything Just Works.

(In fact, it relies on the 'next_variable' links of the 'requestvb'
structure - which is why you shouldn't be following these. Your
MIB module should work with the 'request->next' links, which
follow the varbinds relevant to your module. Anything else is
None Of Your Business).
