We'll have to do a bit of work in the Manager to implement this.
It does sound like a sensible option, but I remember discussing something
similar with you and Henri and we found some drawback. Perhaps that case
was more to do with CVEs. Struggling to find the IRC log.
And perhaps it would be simpler on the whole to make the client do a
GET_NVTS for each NVT to get the extra info? How common will it be that an
OMP client needs this extra info?
