You think it will be that simple?  :-)

I'd like to see it all in with the ntpd configs, but that would cause
conflict with older ntpd.

These days there is no one config file.  Looking at NTP Classic, you
have /etc/ntp.conf and all files in /etc/ntp.d/

I like that idea, the /etc/ntp.conf comes from the distro and then local
mods that modify it go in /etc/ntp.d/

So maybe just change ntp.conf to ntpsnmp.conf and ntp.d to ntpsnmpd.d

I also see some program starting to put configs in /usr/share, but other
than for samples, that seems wrong to me.
