Well, that's trivial ... ;-) I've attached a patch to take care of that.
Anyway, you've talked about "enhancing RRDp accordingly" - what did you
have in mind then? None of the other commands is handled specifically

Also, I noticed that graphv isn't documented yet. Having RRDp point to
some undocumented feature is not very nice imho. Would you mind
providing a manpage for that?

    if ($Sequence ne 'S') {

  What's that supposed to do? ;-)
