[mrtg] interface names instead of numbers?

currently, per target, for bandwith utilization monitoring, we are doign
this per target, as an example:

Target[router-1-multi-link-ppp-port-1]: 50:community at

is there anyway to watch an interface name or description instead if the
interface number?

an snmpwalk shows the port as: interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifDescr.50 =
"MultiLinkPPP: mp.1"

like, would there be anyway to do:

Target[router-1-multi-link-ppp-port-1]: "MultiLinkPPP:
mp.1":community at

as if we add new interfaces, the interface number changes, so we have to
manually go in and change it, every time, and for several hundred routers,
it is no fun at all...
