[rrd-users] Order of legend-items in a stack

Hello list,

I have a rrdgraph question:
When using STACKs, the order of the AREA definitions is mandatory.
But the order of this definition forces the legend-items also to be in
this order. I would need some solution to change the order/position of
the legend-items ... is this possible.

For better understanding, what I need in detail, in a fancy ascii-graph:

^     out_c
|     out_b    <-- stacked
|     out_a
|-------------------------------- <--HRULE (zero-line)
|     in_a
|     in_b     <-- stacked (negative values)
|     in_c
  # in_a       # out_a
  # in_b       # out_b
  # in_c       # out_c

so the stack-order is:
but the legend order should be:

Thanks in advance for any hints !
