Yeah, it's SMASH.  The ATEN implementation used by SuperMicro is pretty
awful to use because you can't reliably list objects at any level, so you
have to work blind. :-(

The problem with the ATEN one SuperMicro uses is that it uses native
methods.  Won't work without them.  Signed by some random dude in China.
Won't run on my management box's OS anyway, which removes any temptation
to run them!

The other one commonly OEMed seems to have its origins at Avocent: IBM,
Dell, and others use that one.  It is pure Java so at least it is a little
more safe.
