In that case, I fear that you're out of luck. We can't add a modified  
IETF MIB, since it would break the MIB auto detection (since both the  
original and modified IETF MIB would use the same OID to check if they  
are supported).

The best solution would be to implement the CPQPOWER.MIB, so that this  
is again a unique one and we don't risk breaking existing  
installations where mib=auto is used.
