Good idea, I haven't thought of that..

It should be easy to change `rrd_update_file' so it creates
subdirectories if the filename passed to it includes a slash..

`plugin_submit' may not be on the same machine, `plugin_write' doesn't
know the filename yet[1] and putting that int `<plugin>_write()' would
be super-redundant..

[1] If all RRD-files are created under a subdirectory with the name of
the plugin then `plugin_write' could create the directory. However,
since such a change would require much user-action I don't want to do
