When will Snapvault have monthly and yearly snapshots for retention?

Snapvault works fine, I like it but right now we have to script monthly and yearly snapshots.  I want a monthly and a yearly option, I filed an RFE with my SE but he said there were 10 others with the same request dating back to 2002.  To me that sound like no hope of ever getting it - it can't be that hard.  When can we expect such a feature?  Really snapvault is not a viable long term backup solution until this is fixed.  All financials need to be held for 7 years, I don't want to offload to tape when I run out of 255 weekly snapshots nor do I want to hold 255 weekly snapshots.  Montly snpshots would suffice but really we need yearly and monthly.

Protection Manager supports monthly snapshots.

Hello, I'm actually facing the same problem with a customer wanting snapvault outside of Protection Manager becasue the destination is going to a SnapLock aggr/.  Would it be possible to get a copy of your scripts ....hate to recreate the wheel.

I would owe you BIG !!!!
