Could you give a small overview on the current implemented feature set?
Which functions of rrdtool did you already implement with your extension
which the older (see thread by me) extension (non-OOP) didn't already have.

I'd be glad if we could "join forces" on the PHP Extension to avoid
duplicate coding and having a uniform extension interface for RRDTool.
Most people having a RRD Extension for PHP are using the version I
posted here on the list or some ancient anchestor of it.

But well, having an OOP interface sounds cool to me and I'd be glad to
integrate it.

That's something Tobi has to answer, as he already did.

hmmm, actually would be nice, but I'd appreciate if it was
backward-compatible with the existing PHP-RRDtool-Extension. See above.

P.S.: @Miroslaw: Sorry for duplicating this mail to you; screwed up
hitting the correct buttons.
