Even munin have things to simplify

The ‘config’ option in munin plugins is probably unnecessary and exists only because somebody didn’t think long enough about it.

No, seriously, I understand why there’s ‘autoconf’ and ‘suggest’ options – they’re really rarely called, maybe on node installation or when module first added to the configuration. But ‘config’ should be (and it is) called before each data fetch. Because graph legend or graph options may change between calls. So, if we always call ‘config’ and ‘fetch’ pair why do we have separate commands for them?

So, it is not an option and should be merged into the ‘fetch’ command.
