[rrd-developers] [PATCH] introduce "epoch" as base time reference

Find attached a patch that introduces "epoch" as a new base time 
reference, meaning timestamp 0.

I use it to disambiguate between some "at-style" time specs:


11111111 yields an error message:

did you really mean month 1111111?


19711205 denotes Dec 12, 1971 and not the timestamp.

The patch allows to write:

epoch+11111111s or epoch+19711205s

which fixes both problems.

The patch also updates documentation in rrdfetch.pod
