It might be more understandable to go into /etc/rc?.d and remove the
references to snmpd.  Personally, I just rename them from (eg) S10snmpd to
be s10snmpd.  The lower case'll make them not execute on startup but
they're still there for reference.

By editing the /etc/init.d copy to break it you start to make the sys
configuration more confusing to understand.

Just imo, but I'd rather disable something so it doesn't run than break it
so when it runs it doesn't do anything....
