By far the easiest is to use another RRDtool command.  Use rrdtool graph
without actually creating an image.  Only use PRINT (not *G*PRINT) and
collect the output to use it as input for the next run.

Close, you should use "graph", not "fetch".  You can then query
MAX, MIN, AVERAGE and LAST as you're used to do.

   rrdtool graph /dev/null

Now you can use $modemsinuse in the next rrdtool command, spanning
the same time range yet actually creating the graph.

If you like you can also have a look at the 1.1.x version.  This is
alpha code but I think VDEF is suitable to solve your problem.
If you want to test it and comment on it that would be great.
