[collectd] StoreRates option for Network plugin

Hello, everyone.

I'm new with Collectd but I'm finding it an amazing tool, very useful.

I'm trying to put up a simple setup here with it and Logstash, to send
metrics to an specific system we have in the company I work for.
Everything fine so far, except that I can't obtain rate values for
CPU. I'm using the network plugin to connect with Logstash, and it
does not have the "StoreRates" option that all write plugins seem to

Is that feature in the plans for a near future? (I couldn't find much
about that on Internet, as if no one needed it like me.)

I know that I could get around it writing to a CSV file and reading it
from logstash but I really wouldn't like to, considering that Logstash
has even an specific output type for Collectd.

Thank you.
