[rrd-users] update conversion...

Is there any documentation on what rrdtool update does when converting
from the commandline arguments to doubles?  I was looking at the code and
it looks like for COUNTER's and DERIVE's it calls rrd_diff which strips
non characters.  Is this true?  I guess my question is, is it safe to do
something like

rrdtool update rrd.rrd NOW:1024K:20K:20
                               ^---^---- NOTE

Though wouldn't it be neat if RRDtool did the conversion for you?
