[mrtg] MRTG not good for data archive

I was just looking into writing a utility for regular MRTG which would allow
me to enter a date and have mrtg generate a graph for that date using the
data stored in the logs.  The problem is that MRTG seems to change the log
data as time goes on...I mean that the five minute values that mrtg collects
get processed and re-entered into the log as 30 minute values and then 1
hour values etc...as time goes on.  Is there any way to force mrtg to keep
ALL the five minute values and not recalculate it for the 30 minute, 1 hour,
etc graphs.  Would switching to RRD or something help with this problem.
Thanks for any help.  This causes us a great problem as we thought that we
had detailed logging data for about 2 years but it turns out that we don't,
only some high level data which we can see in the yearly graph as is.
