[rrd-developers] SQL Backend request

I while ago I noticed a topic that let rrdtool use a database backend.  What
is the status with this project?  Also, has this turned out to be a viable
solution when updating large amounts of rrd files?  We're currently
exploring other storage media to help our writes become faster.  We are
currently writing just under 100K rrd files and have distributed writing.
We were thinking of modifying rrdtool to use a MySql database and would like
to modify the database beackend I saw on the list (if needed) accordingly so
that we don't have to re-invent the wheel.

I tried to look through the archives, but was only seeing patches to the
library file.  Is there a place to get the whole thing at?  I couldn't see
it in the /lib or /contrib download directories of the main site.
