Yup, this would be a huge step forward for RRDtool! It would make it 
more into a toolkit and make it easier for others to contribute as they 
could focus on a specific portion of the codebase/functionality. By 
separating the storage, we could experiment with storing individual RRAs 
in a SQL database or in a BDB. I can imagine that the buffer management 
and sequential log writes built into databases could significantly 
improve the performance, but then I can also imagine that they could 
screw it up in a major way :-).
