Go ahead, but don't forget to modify gensnmptree so that it does not choke on
the .def files. On that topic: I'm thinking for some time now to move to
SMInG instead. This looks like it is more easily parseable than ASN.1. What
I don't know is the state of it: was it abondoned entirely or is there still
work going on, or what? Anybody knows what went on on the IETF SNMP meetings
when it was discussed?
