I'd thought about this problem but never really did more than that.

Here's a suggestion for Blair or anyone else.  What if you could specify
in the orcallator.cfg (or procallator.cfg since I use procallator.pl on
my Linux systems as the data gatherer) one or more regular expressions
in which you could specify which file systems to graph (or which ones to
ignore and never graph).  You'd have to add code somewhere orca to deal
with that.

Just a thought.
