that's comparable to what I had with Perl, the only difference is that 
"user" is nearly 100% of "real"....

On their site they say that one of the reasons why they built RTG 
is that rrdtool averages the data. 

And now you want to combine them, thus turning RTG into another RRDTool frontend. 
I suspect that the RTG guys won't support this add-on, and you'll have 
to maintain your own branch, which makes things complicated. 
Why not just improving one of the existing RRDtool frontends?
