If you wish to try implementing the EtherLike-MIB, go right ahead.

That's the place to look, yes.
It's slightly out of date (since 5.2.5 is now out),
but it's broadly correct.
The next release will definitely be 5.4.2, and
it's up to me to get that moving again.

A new implementation such as the EtherLike would only really be
appropriate for inclusion in the 5.5 line. So it would be sensible
to try and get this implemented over the summer.
Pushing for a Q4 release for 5.5 feels about right. I'm certainly
intending to concentrate on coding rather than the mailing lists
for the foreseeable future.
