Yeah, I know this ought to be a problem, but actually it hasn't bitten
me so far.

All my RRDs are generated on Linux x86 (32 and 64bit) and these seem
to be parsed fine by the javascriptRRD library on Windows 32 / 64,
Linux x86 32 / 64 and MacOSX.

Maybe its just luck.

Do you think the idea of parsing the RRD files in javascript is
completely doomed, or are there combinations of RRD source
architecture and client arch that will generally work?

I read your portable RRD wiki page which sounds promising.

Yes, I'll certainly give that a try.
