I am interested in this.  i have been thinking that 14all.cgi looks
like a better solution than index.cgi for a little while.  However, we
also would like to have 14all.cgi be able to sort the .gif file output
so that we just see the biggest users at the top, and stuff like that, 
and we have started to put that sort of command line into index.cgi.

I am not sure that it is wise to be having mrtg creating the .gif
files, as far as that goes.

I suppose that rrdtool is the way to be going, since that tool looks
like it is the one which will be maintained going forward.  We still
need to save the 5 minute queries into a MySQL database for forever
billing and it seems like the same work either way.
