Hi Florian,

You're right... those changes make collectd more consistent. As I had some
spare time this morning they are already in SVN ;-)

Also, I added a "failed" DS to the traffic-*.rrd files. I could not yet figure
out what exactly that is supposed to be, though ;-)

I will install the new version on my server in just a minute ;-)
