In fact, your example is simply a specific case of the more general
approach. Instead of

snmpwalk -W foo.x.y.z foo

(with an optional starting point), this would become

snmpwalk -CE {foo+1} foo.x.y.z

(with an optional ending point).

I haven't look at the code for your patch yet, but I suspect
that this approach ought to be simpler to implement.

The down-side is that specifying the ending point is perhaps
slightly less obvious.
