While we must provide for networked installation we must also provide
for non-networked installation.
Also, I am a bit uncomfortable with SNMP for large chunks of text.
Last time I checked, SNMP was rather complex in the way it dealt with
things that wouldn't fit into a single packet.
Anyways, while it's reasonable to expect that someone can map the
interface onto SNMP, I see no reason to require it.
