That was referring to the amount of steps per pixel column, which RRDtool
will be happy to alter for you if needed.

Such 'behind the scenes' alterations, although correct, make it more
difficult to predict what is going to happen, and therefore I recommend to
avoid it.

I'm open to suggestions for new text.
