For multi-node deployments, implementing something like inotify would allow administrators to push configuration changes out to multiple targets using puppet/chef/etc. and have the daemons pick it up without restart. Thumbs up to that.
As Tim Bell suggested, API-based enabling/disabling would allow users to update meters via script, but then there's the question of how to work out the global vs. per-project tenant settings...right now we collect specified meters for all available projects, and the API returns whatever data is stored minus filtered values. Maybe I'm missing something in the suggestion, but turning off collection for an individual project seems like it'd require some deep changes.
