Sure :-)

I am thinking about writing some mechanism to create such modules (i.e.
provide some functions that do all the common work of setting up and handling
data transfer into collectd thru a UNIX socket). However, as data processing
is quite plugin-dependant I could not find a good solution for it yet.
Suggestions are very welcome. :-)

Imho it makes more sense to make the UNIX socket prefix (i.e.
"/tmp/.collectd") configurable thru the config file than having each plugin
have its own socket path or making it a compile time option.

Yes, that's on my TODO list already. I also want to use Flo's AVL trees to
manage most of the collected data.

It does not make sense to implement this twice. The SA plugin is only
responsible for providing the data. It's the email-plugin's job to process and
filter the data.
