that's the idea.
FYI, a rewrite of snmp-ups is planned to address various issues.
the base idea is to use the real subdriver approach, as in usbhid-ups.
One these improvements could be to have common data definition, that
get "instanciated" with the right entry point at init time... you get
the idea.

I've not yet gone in depth of this reflexion, but having that in mind
can help in preparing the future.
BTW, for the recall, the XUPS Mib is available in the protocol library.
And I can get in touch with somebody at Eaton if needed.
Though I'm still diverted by dumb subjects currently...
