De-duplication of alerts

LM supports snmp traps, that's great. But it would be nice if the below features are provided.

- Able to extract the varbinds from the traps and customize the alert fields

- Multiple traps for the same issue, is currently presented as a separate  alert. Separate alerts causes lot of noise and it doesnt make the alert page usable. It would be nice if there are options to deduplicate alerts based on varbinds

- As device would be sending clear traps, it would be nice to have co-relation of problem and clear alert(auto clearing of problem once there is a matching clear event)

I see LM is against traps, but allowing to integrate traps via EventSources and not able to do much with the traps is definitely not helpful. Appreciate if LM could consider this as a Feature request.
