I checked out the contrib directory and it's almost usable.
Unfortunately the way I have implemented MRTG means I can't use it. The
contrib script backup.pl assumes all config files are in the same
directory. In my site, I have a separate directory for each config file
and a separate output file for each one. The reason for this is I have
many sites to monitor and I find that a carefully laid out directory
structure lends order to the procedure.

What I would have to do is modify backup.pl to accept a list of input
config dirs and output dirs and run through its main body as a loop for
each one. Not being a perl programmer, it's back to the drawing board.

Unless someone out there already did this...
