There is no way to get all the information from a sho ver via an snmpget
command or series of commands.

The reason we want it is for information like Board ID's and Software
revisions, and image file's, and other info.   That way we can see exactly
what the routers configuration is, and what it is capable of.

If we just wanted sysname and sysuptime, then that we can do via an
snmpget, and mrtg will do that by default.   For the record, the Sho Ver
info we want, is completely seperate from the projects we do with MRTG.
it is instead for a facilities/provisioning database.
