I am a bit more optimistic about SNMPv3. We have many independent
implementation. And we have the UCD SNMPv3 implementation - freely
available code is sometimes the key to deploy technology. But I agree,
it will take a long long time until there will be significant SNMPv3
deployment and SNMPv1 will stay with us for a long time. (But this
true for all successful technologies like e.g. IPv4 or even Fortran.)
