We already make extensive use of MRTG2 to monitor network traffic, and 
after I attending Tobias's presentation on RRDTool at OSCON I decided I 
ought to give that a try as well.  For purposes of learning RRDTool, I 
decided to monitor environmental factors in two different wiring 
closets.  I'm collecting humidity and temp Celsius data and presenting 
it in a single graph and I'm  using rpn to calculate the Fahrenhiet 
value as well, and presenting all six data points on a single graph.  
What I haven't been able to figure out and/or glean from the docs is how 
to organize the legend.  I would like to organize it into meaningful 
rows and columns whereas right now it looks like a single row that wraps 
at end of line.  Is that doable?  Where do I look for more info.  Also, 
I would like to present the data so that the newest values are on the 
left, not the right hand side.  Is there something like a "growleft" 
parameter to flip the graph?  I couldn't find that in the docs either.
