thanks for you changes, I've put your plugin into the Git repository :)

There are a couple of plugins reading directories, so they could be
changed to use it.. If you want, you can put `walk_directory()' into
common.c and change the directory reading plugins to use it.. The
following files use `readdir' right now:
-- 8< --
 octo at huhu:~/collectd $ grep -rlI readdir src

The NFS plugin is a false hit, I think. It collects the number of
`readdir' operations on the file system ;)

That could be implemented as a macro in common.h:
 #define OPT_IS_TRUE(str) ((strcasecmp ((str), "true") == 0) \
         || (strcasecmp ((str), "yes") == 0) \
         || (strcasecmp ((str), "on") == 0))
 #define OPT_IS_FALSE(str) ((strcasecmp ((str), "false") == 0) \
         || (strcasecmp ((str), "no") == 0) \
         || (strcasecmp ((str), "off") == 0))

Sorry, I don't know what you mean by that..?
