SNMP statistics in namespaces

Hi Dave,

Guess it's useful when you are interested in network statistics per name space. I'm currently evaluating how much of the name space implementation we could use  in one of our projects (see my other email to the group).

Any idea who might have a complete picture on the network name space project, and the overall status?

I'm an idiot.  I know that SNMP has something to do with network
statistics, and I'm too lazy to google it.

Could you give us a quick idea why SNMP is important here?  You're
welcome to add it to the list, but it's unlikely to get implemented
until someone thinks it is important.  That said, I'd be happy to help
you put together some patches to implement it.
