I'm glad you like the old presenter but just a heads up that we are
moving towards Grafana [1] because of the very nice interactive
JavaScript based functionality.

What could be interesting for you is the dsc-datatool [2] which I have
been developing to be a bridge between formats, for example it will be
used to import dsc XML/DAT data into Graphite.

You could develop a plugin for dsc-datatool which would let you select
the data files you wish and produce whatever kind of output you would
need for the pre-generated graphing application you choose or write one
yourself (I am guessing you want something MRTG-style).
