actually, if you're talking about programs using the C API, you can use
`rrdc_connect', `rrdc_update', `rrdc_disconnect'. This not only makes it
absolutely clear that you're using the daemon, this also lets you
control how long the connection will stay open.

The old-style `argc, argv'-API won't let you do that.

The issue at hand is how `rrdtool' (the command line utility) should use
the cache..
