Hi Raphael,

The systemd changes mostly looks good (patch 002).   I like the practice of
not using /etc/default/snmpd (I did not use this when I "systemd-itized"
net snmp).

Other then that, my "After" was set to "networking.service syslog.service"
rather then "network.target" because I find the latter does not mean the
network is actually up and usable.   Also, we opted to not start snmpd
by default (we make users consciously choose to "enable" and "start" (in
debian/rules file).

I haven't looked at the first patch (diffs of diffs give me a headache...I
just applied all the patches (via git apply) but I will look at it later
this week.   Patches 3 and 4 look good but I haven't tested them yet.
