FWIW, the Debian smokeping package I (co-)maintain does not use or install
the SNMP_Session module bundled with Smokeping, but rather a separately
packaged one. This is standard practice, and having separate copies of
the same library is considered a bug.

The Config::Grammar module is not packaged separately for Debian because
Smokeping is the only program using it, so we install and use the version
bundled with Smokeping.
