There is a blog post with some general information and screenshots at http://oierud.name/bliki/ImprovedMuninGraphsForMySQL.html
The information on http://code.google.com/p/mysql-cacti-templates/wiki/MySQLTemplates should be relevant (As these munin graphs are heavily inspired by Xaprb's cacti graphs.)
There is a wiki at https://github.com/kjellm/munin-mysql/wiki

If you get warnings saying "Output from SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS was truncated" that means that a very large deadlock are causing the output to be truncated. The consequence is that data for many of the InnoDB related data sources will be missing. For solutions to this problem see http://www.xaprb.com/blog/2006/08/08/how-to-deliberately-cause-a-deadlock-in-mysql/
