Net-Policy does 1, 3, and 5...  It collects traps and lets you view
them, but doesn't currently email (trivial addition though).  #2 isn't
done, though it does collect data and put it in a postgres database,
thus you could say it collects it, just not in a way in which you can
send it back out again :-/
