I like this approach, and actually have implemented such a wrapper and
have been using it for a couple of weeks now. So far so good.

See https://github.com/collectd/collectd/pull/2041

This way, no need to modify or rebuild collectd itself. It should work
with any existing or future version, with out-of-tree plugins, and even
with other tools than collectd ;-)
