Are you just planning to be able to read/write values from a Cisco
device (IE GET/ operations of some kind or another)?

In which case its that simple...

If you are trying to write an agent which will create the values in
the mib to replace the cisco agent then its alot more complex as
you'll need to create code so the snmpd server can initialise,
populate and access the information.
