OK this feature is now in pre21, which I have just released on 


Change Log:

From: Lucas Nussbaum <lucas at ians.be>

 - contrib: ircstats2.pl a script used to monitor the user load on
   IRC networks.  Contrary to ircstats by Matt Ramsey, it remains
   connected to the server.

From: Tobi

 - add mask to mkdir call it seems some perls can't deal with
   the simple form ...

 - fixed forking code ... I think I got the typeglob magic right
   now.  note, when experimenting with the number of forked
   collectors, more is not always better. Eg, If you shoot two
   collectors at a single router in parallel this may prove to be
   slower than having one collector at work.  As a rule of thumb
   you might want to try a fork equivalent to the number of routers
   you are monitoring ...  (my record with forking, RunAsDaemon and
   RRDtool is 800 interfaces in 13 seconds ...

 - added the Include: keyword to the config parser as discussed on the ML
