[collectd] Support for DERIVED rrd-type

Hi folks,

perhaps you have some ideas for me.
I have noticed collectd only has support for GAUGE and COUNTER
RRD-DS-types. Especially if you count network-interfaces and reset them
counters to zero, rrdtool will probably create a full-rate spike as it
assumes that a counter overflow (32 or 64bit) has happened. So I would
like to use the DERIVED type (with the perl-plugin) which can be used as
a counter without wraps. Is there any chance to accomplish that?

Many thanks in advance and best regards,
