Isn't there an example in one of the tutorials?

something like:

_IF_ you are going to do this at graph time, you will have
to chose between:

a) start all over again with a new rrd
b) create a complex CDEF that looks at the time and, depending on
   the time, does the multiplication by eight

I know the tutorial does have a similar example where it converts unknown
to zero, but only before a certain time.
