There is no possiblity to execute scripts from collectd and I don't think
Florian is ever going to implement a feature like that, as this will slow
things down a lot.

I did write a plugin to count users which was commited to SVN yesterday. Just
have a look at it. If your script is doing more that that, just tell me and
I'm going to try to implement the additional features ;-)

According to an email to this list yesterday, Florian is going to write a
plugin to collect filesystem usage.
