The MRTG 'unknaszero' option is supported by all the available frontends.

I know you're using rrdcgi, but if you were using the Routers2 frontend,
you'd get total graphs for incoming/outgoing automatically (which would
change with the cfg file, and give component lines etc).  You might be able
to use routers2 in image mode to just generate the image, although this is
probably overkill.
