As I look through the IPMI spec, I realize now that setting thresholds
has nothing to do w/ the SDR.  It seems to be a configurable field
independent of the SDR.  Event enabling/disabling of the sensor also
seems to be independent of the SDR.

So perhaps, this should not be 'ipmi-sdr' or 'sdr-config' but rather
something else.  "ipmi-sensor-config"??  Seems sort of long.  Any better
ideas for a tool name?  Or should we just add a --checkout/--commit/--
diff into 'ipmi-sensors'?  The later is an idea I don't like.
