[rrd-users] Graphs over several years without specifying end time?

I want to monitor things over a long time and I'm worried about
running past the end time of a RRD.

Should I simply make the RRD end in 50 years?  Is there a more elegant

Currently I'm extracting all data from a SQL database and run rrd
create+update's+graph each time I want a graph, specifying new
start/end times.  So I'm not really interested in the compact storage
functionality of RRDtool, but only the graphing capabilities (which
are awesome!).  This works, but I'm not getting the impression that
I'm using rrdtool as intended.

A minor nuisance -- I want to create very small graphs but the RRDTool
vanity string in the right end of the image enforces a too large size.
I could comment it out of the code, but that's not nice, so perhaps
there could be a option to let the text be horizontal in the bottom
left end?
