Reproducing the net-SNMP library and its command line utilities seems
pointless. The ground is already well covered.

I suppose the only thing that might be useful would be the ability to handle
simultaneous SNMP and libcurl traffic. That would mean some way to have the
Net-SNMP library and libcurl be able to share I/O multiplexing on
fdset/select, etc. I don't know if there are SNMP libraries that would have
the hooks to support this kind of thing.
