I am thinking about interesting ways to do that.  I like some aspects
of the Apache module system, where you can either compile-in or
runtime-load modules.

There could be some "builtin" rrdtool (or librrd, I guess) output
providers -- SVG and PDF, for example.  Other output providers could
"register" as being able to generate a given format.  The provider
used could perhaps be selected by the user (as an option) or by the
code after "benchmarking" different providers that claim support for
the chosen format.

If we toss around some ideas, we might find something useful.
