[XFCE4 Hardware Monitor Plugin] Vast graph speedup with slow data sources - much less data displayed

This thread is for any users of the XFCE4 Hardware Monitor Plugin that
are subscribed to the dev list (if there are any...), and all users of
'recent' bugs CC'd in. *If anyone doesn't want to be included in such
mail, please tell me direct and I'll make a note*.

Ted has submitted a patch
(https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13796) intended to allow
sensible inclusion of any monitor type on a single graph - however this
is done by updating all monitors (injecting dupe data points where
needed) at the fastest monitor rate, which is once per second. The
slowest monitor, the Disk Usage Monitor, only updates (fetches real
data) once a minute.

Anyone that uses Disk Usage Monitor will now have 60x less history
displayed (or 30x for Load Average Monitor, etc etc) - do any of you use
the Hardware Monitor Plugin this way, and would dislike the sudden
history loss?
