which i'd agree is the right thinking.  the rrd's can't be reliably
regenerated thanks to logrotation (your logs will only go so far back and
even then it's a pita to get all of that loaded back into the rrd, i had
to do just that a couple weeks ago) the graphs (png images), however,
can be quickly regenerated from the rrd file, so it makes sense to put
them in /var/cache.
