SNMP for the masses

[ #27056 ]
My mind has been in overdrive. The "let's do an SNMP talk" plan got me thinking.. What would be pretty cool to do with SNMP? In all fairness, it's just a network protocol and thus quite boring. Then it hit me: I'll do some tunneling. My plan is to write some handlers, specifiy some MIBs, write a few simple TCP servers and come up with a way to tunnel HTTP over SNMP. How will this work technically? You set up a local HTTP proxy (HTTP::Proxy anyone?) which translates requests to SNMP SET and GET calls. On the SNMP Server side, I'll create OID handles to process the GET and SET requests and forward the HTTP requests to, uhm well, the internet. The same thing should be doable with a Mail server.
