[smokeping-users] A question about Multi Target

In the documentation, it looks like a "multi target" graph is defined
like any other but with space-separated host names on the 'hosts=' line.
I was wondering if it was possible, or could be considered as an
enhancement, to allow grouping already-defined targets into a
multi-target display.

For example, I'd really like to be able to display a set of hosts
individually, but then to also take a sub-group of those same hosts -
say all devices on VPNs connected via carrier 1, and another group of
those hosts connected via carrier2 and display each set on a single
graph. That way, it would be easy to spot something which is common to
an entire group of devices - for example packet loss on the carrier's

Any thoughts? I'm currently using 2.4.2
