While I'd love to have the 'ACCEPTONLY:' tag, I don't think it's ready 
for prime time. I don't think this should hold up 4.3.22 release and 
suggest it be backed out and saved for later.

What I'm seeing after appending the tag to a host: 

I can use my xymon client to feed a status result for test "goo" on that 
host. It is happily accepted. The message content is discarded and 
replaced with the word "data". The test results turn purple after some 
odd amount of time (which I can't yet peg down).

As much as I'd like to have this working, I really think it should wait.

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