What should we do about "UPDATEV" until we have support in rrdcached?

Currently the client code will just abort "UPDATEV" requests.  This may
cause problems in an environment that uses both "UPDATE" and "UPDATEV"...
it's probably desirable to set $RRDCACEHD_ADDRESS for the former, but it's
impossible for the latter.

I see a couple decent options:

 - "FLUSH" the file, then operate directly on it (race condition with new

 - Implement "UPDATEV" in the daemon.  How does this affect 1.4 release
