Actaully, it REALLY helps if you remember to start the NEW version
of orcallator.se so that the new headers are available!

For this run, I've done the following (don't try this at home!)

modify config file.
kill orca
kill all the remote orcallators (like 11 or so)
edit all the orcallator output files to change the old 'Dw' format into the new State_D format
move all the rrd and html files to a backup place (rrd alone was like 154 meg)
rename orca.state
restart all the orcallators (I *love* scripts ;-)
restart orca
Hold breath for like a couple of hours while orca does its thing ;-)

I'll report back and include a sample plot of the State_ info.
