If you're talking per-socket SNMP counters, then that could work.
   General protocol-wide counters would not help much, at least
   in my case.

Why not?  If you know where the drops are occurring, what else
do you need to know?

I need to account for packets on a per-session basis, where a
session endpoint is a UDP port.  So, knowing global protocol numbers is
good, but it is not very useful for the detailed accounting I
need.  I could also use per-socket TCP counters, like re-transmits,
etc.  I have not looked to see if they are already there
or not...
