[collectd] collectd write mysql plugin

I have worked with this plugin (maybe not in last version).
Yes, it works well, but with not so many servers.
And we added servers and servers and more servers to monitor. And it 
became too slow.
So I wrote the plugin jsonrpc to ask data directly to collectd, not to 
the database.
About jsonrpc, check Pull Request #154.

So here is one reason not using it if you have a lot of servers.
I have no other reason using it or not.
