First off, I'm not sure I agree, but I am biased, I've been around
since SNMPv1 :-)

Second, implementing SNMP support in a portable way is unfortunately the
same as implementing all of SNMP, there are no agreed on portable
API's for implementing SNMP. (Another POSIX failure there).

Thirdly, somebody would have to sponsor the work.

So I would say the answer to your question is: "unlikely".

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
