SNMP version syntax inconsistent across components

      Description

      I just learned that some SNMP-speaking components (SnmpDetector, DiskUsageDetector, others) expect SNMP versions to be specified only in the form "snmpv1" / "snmpv2" / "snmpv2c" / "snmpv3". This deviates from what I thought I knew, which is that "v1" / "v2c" or "v2" / "v3" is correct everywhere.

      It appears this pattern was copied over more or less directly from the old equivalent Capsd plugins.

      We should normalize every component that allows specifying an SNMP version to accept at least the short forms ("v3" and so on). Probably best to continue recognizing "snmpv3" etc. where it's currently recognized. Not sure whether we should start to allow the long form in places where it's not historically been recognized.
