as I see it, rrdcached in 1.4 is a local acceleration daemon with
some network abilities for the adventurous (since there is neither
authentication nor authorization built in)

this also means that use of the daemon should be transparent,
to use ... for file paths this means at least when running local,
that the curent directory of the rrdupdate command does matter ...

when running remotely this is not the case and should probably  be
handled differenly ... but then again, remote use of rrdcached will
see some further changes with authentication and authorization
anyway ...

I will have time to spend on all my OSS projects in the next few
weeks and will do so. The means 1.4 will definitly come RSN (;
