[smokeping-users] RRD Command for generating Smokeping graphs via CLI

Here's a question - Do the graph titles need to be flexible (not just one
modification) or can it be static (IE not Navigator Graph bot something
else that stays the same all the time)?  Knowing this I might be able to
dig into code a bit and see if I can't find something that would allow it
to be modified.
