no it doesn't yet, but that makes sense.. I'll see to it.

I have to admit that writing new stuff is much more fun, but I don't
mind maintaining that code, too. But I'd like to get it right first (i.
e. get the daemon stable) and make it fancy later (i. e. add support for
the daemon to little used commands such as `lastupdated').[1]

I don't mind looking into that, but I'm afraid my time if very limited
at the moment. This will get better after August 1st, but the few
remaining days until July 22nd are a nightmare.. So if this problem can
wait a few more days I'll take care of it, no problem. If you need it
asap you're better off not waiting for me..

If by that you mean my patch, I'd be offended. Please take a look - it
adds over 14kBytes of manual pages, to mention just one point where the
patch differs from ``just some blob of code''.


[1] Speaking of fancy, I just realized that `rrdcgi' might be one of the
    candidates that should know about the daemon, too. I'll check that..
    It might take some days, though ;)
