Yeah, those are all normal monitors rather than Perl -- I was just
looking for something that should be calling the RRD sections of
SNIPS.pm and hoping that it was either consistent or non-consistent
behaviour... just another datapoint, is all.

Hmmm.. ok, I don't think there are any version-specific hooks anywhere
(and were there, you'd most likely see *something* spewing errors some
place, I think).

Yeah, looking at the code, about the only thing I see in SNIPS.pm just
sets dorrd, ties it in to SNIPS::globals but then doesn't seem to do
anything else with it that I can spot.

I'm guess that this is just a piece of unfinished code that, for some
reason, no one else has mentioned.  Perhaps Vikas will speak up on
this... *smile*
