I really hope, I do not sound too picky, but this would change the
semantics of rrd_flush() which would be a backward incompatible change
to the ABI as well (thus requiring a major soname version bump).

Please note though, that removing the call to rrd_flush() in the holt-
winter stuff is perfectly valid (as long as it does not break anything,
of course ;-)).
