[collectd] [RFC] idea: write_rest plugin

I recently learned that the write_prometheus plugin - very nice
addition btw -
embeds one http server, and accepts requests from prometheus itself.
I was wondering if one similar plugin but for REST queries would be
accepted in the mainline.
What I was thinking of:
1. new plugin inspired by write_prometheus, reusing libmicrohttpd
2. support only for GET
3. optional auth and TLS support
I haven't written any code yet, just in the design phase. Would that be
interesting for the project?
Thanks and best regards.
