  Not right now.  I don't think it should be too hard to add.  The
main concerns is few people know much about MIBs.

  We would have to:

  a) define a FreeRADIUS MIB, under it's OID space
  b) create a "statistics" struct to hold the data
  c) update the stats from threads.c (and other places)
  d) update radius_snmp.c to grab the stats

  If we're going to publish SNMP stats for threads, I would prefer
also to publish SNMP stats for as many other things as possible, too.

  e.g. memory use, cpu load, and anything else we can think of.

  But once the framework in (a-d) is there, the rest should be pretty
