If this project is self-contained and can be completed in 12 weeks by
a person without prior libvirt and SNMP experience, but fluent C
programming skills, then it sounds suitable.

Is there any creativity required or problems to solve that aren't
grunt work?  For example, if you just need to run mib2c and then
manually diff to produce the final C version, then this sounds like a
lot of manual work but little gain for the student.
