I didn't try to disabuse anyone of any notion - other than the fact that I
didn't need help implementing 95th percentile - in hopes that they would
answer the survey.  Even without trying to answer I ended up in far too
many conversations :-(

Note: If you're small enough that you're still using MRTG, you can likely 
just ignore everything I just wrote.
Er... MRTG out of the box.  Some people have extended MRTG/rrdtool usage
extensively.  You can get a lot of use out of RRDTool if you are willing to
write your own tools to (ab)use it.

But yes, generally true ;-)
