Thanks!  I'll check them out, and try to merge things together into monolithic templates if possible.

In the absence of any other guidance, I'm using a suffic of .tp for interface templates and .htp for host templates.

Well, at the moment I've a fairly good one for hosts and CPU - I think the key is to check the sysdescr and then hook in the appropriate OID; or else use oid_pick to identify what's the best available.
