I'm not sure if the current change is the proper one either.  Jake has
has gone into much trouble to leave rrd_graph.h out of rrd_rpncalc.c
(or so it seems to me).

I wonder if we shouldn't have much more, smaller, include files.  Dito
for the various functions.

As an example:

Stuff that deals with parsing DEFs should worry about DEF_NAM_FMT,
the rest shouldn't. Why not create rrd_graph_def.c and rrd_graph_def.h,
and include rrd_graph_def.h from any place that needs it.  The functions
dealing with vnames then all behave the same, which is of course what we
want.  To start with, DEF_NAM_FMT could be in its own file (just two
lines, together with MAX_VNAME_LEN) which can be included from both
rrd_graph.h and rrd_rpncalc.h

IMHO when done consistently this will eventually result in a better

I know you feel there shouldn't be many files but I urge you to
reconsider, maybe even have a separate directory for rrd_graph and
have all the stuff in there.  It will take a while to find the new
place of a function (which is what you worried about last time we
discussed this) but that should only be temporary.
