Funny, I've been doing some work on the PHP rrdtool extension myself in
the last couple of weeks.  It's not quite ready for prime-time yet, but
I have completed the following:

- remove requirement to send argument count to rrd_graph
- add support for rrd_xport
- remove requirement to send argument count to rrd_fetch
- support multiple update values in rrd_update
- support rrd_lastupdate
- support rrd_first
- clean up phpinfo() output

I was planning to tackle rrd_info next, but haven't looked at rrd_dump.
