Ah, yes... something that has been floating around my head ever since I
heard about version 1.2.X of rrdtools.  A *.rrd file is a binary file, in
the sense, that if I edit it with
vi(m)/emacs/joe/jed/nano/pico/what-have-you, I only get a binary
"garbage" back.

Now the question:
	Is it guaranteed that a *.rrd file is portable between:
		a) platforms  (x86, solaris, hp-ux, mac, 32bit, 64

		b) different versions of rrd?  1.0.X versus 1.2.X ?

Cheers, and thanks for a great program Tobi and the rest.
