Hm, the SNMP and service bits don't really seem to have been written with 
large scale deployments in mind.  There's no way to pass in a configure 
file or set various bits via the command line, in particular the protocols 
and ports that are to be used.  This means one would have to endlessly hack 
on the scripts across multiple MTAs to get this up and running. :/
