[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#610630: Why not get over with this?

This unfortunate code in the postinst script led to serveral (like
#482041, #589040, #606784 and #610630) bugs.  Now that there have been
stable releases with the upgrade code adding the snmp group, the
existing user and group could be let alone, simply by letting adduser
fail gracefully, without any conditional logic.  What do you think?
(I'm currently suffering this doing the latest squeeze point upgrade.)
