[Xymon] xymon as a drop-in bb replacement

We ran BB 1.9 for years, then switched to BBPE about three years ago. 
Earlier this month, Quest announced end-of-life for BBPE so we're 
looking at our options.

We have fewer than 500 clients reporting into Big Brother. But swapping 
them out for something else is going to painful and take time. If a 
xymon server will happily accept bb-client messages, then I could stand 
up a xymon server and replace clients through attrition.

Has anyone else recently gone down this path?

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
