I don't think that there would be any real reason for that. So, as long
as nobody comes up who could imagine any *real* reason for that, I won't
do that. I just don't think using the rrdtool binary rather than the
Perl module makes any sense.

Yeah, that makes sense. I've added rrdtool to the suggested packages.
