It is my understanding that Debian maintainers typically don't upgrade a package to a new upstream release once that package has hit stable. Given that this makes a specific driver unusable for certain hardware, it might be possible to create a patch for 2.6.4 that pulls in the latest snmp-ups driver.

I would open up a bug against the package, and if needed, we can add that bug's email address to the CC list for this thread.
