New methods getReferenceSymbol() and isReferenceTo() have been added to the MibType and MibValue classes. These allow easy access to referenced types.

This will be released in version 2.2.

The type or value symbols referenced by a specific type or value cannot be retrieved. This cause some problems, as different types may share the same ASN.1 type representation. The typical example of this is IpAdress which is defined as an OCTET STRING of length 4. Without access to the dereferenced "IpAddress" name, it is impossible to distinguish this type from other specialized string types.

This problem was pointed out by Charles F. Schatz.
