[rrd-developers] Question: rrdtool pipe interface - restore support?

Does the rrdtool pipe interface somehow support an in-stream xml restore

"dump" is  (mostly) working as expected, although one has to look for
the "OK" response line to find out where the xml ends, but this is not a
problem. "restore" however has the problem that it does not take input
over the pipe interface. Using "-" as XML input seems to *partly* work,
but fails with a parser error. Using /dev/stdin works when using the
pipe interface on the command line, but can't work when using the pipe
over a TCP connection....

Any ideas?

I admit that I am using a rather old version: 1.4.7...
