I have tested both approaches and there does not seem to be much 
difference in speed (both are quite fast), So I think I'm going to stay 
away from SQLite to reduce the overall complexity and just use RRD.

Downside is of course that this way I somehow ignore the RR from RRD, 
because I will collect the data in yearly RRDs which will never ever be 
overwritten. But it seems to work quite fine.

I have another question (quite similar to the one I send in February), 
but I'll post this as a different thread.
