How about the following:

	rrdtool edit [command what identity...]

	Where:		Is:
		command		either ADD or DELETE (case insensitive)
		what		either DS or RRA (case insensitive)
		identity	dependent on whether what is DS or RRA.
				for DS, the DS name (case sensitive)
				for RRA, CF:xff:steps:rows (case sensitive)

In the case of RRA DELETE, the xff could be left blank to imply any xff.

The information necessary to complete the command could be gleaned from
rrdtool info.
