Thanks, Greg! I started with your plugin and moved to a compiled solution
because python wasn't available on some of the hosts I am monitoring. Your
work was a big help to me and a great source of inspiration.

I'm curious why you added the ability to send derived values to carbon. That
feels contrary to the "Graphite way" of doing things, since derivative() and
nonNegativeDerivative() provide the same functionality.
