so yes, it's finally done.  whoopee :)

i unfortunately was not able to do the split-off of the extcommands
as i hoped we'd be able to.  turns out the cfg_dir/cfg_file directives
are only for object configuration data, and this is a server directive.
ah well.  i think the only other recourses are to either do nothing,
alter the nagios.cfg itself, or to ship with it enabled.

however, i can think of a compromise which i think should get us
the best of all worlds:

- ship with it activated, but set permissions such that it is not
  usable without administrative action.

what do you think?

also, i think the command file is misplaced.  currently, it's

- /var/lib/nagios2/rw/nagios.cmd

and as nagios 1.x does it, it should be something like

- /var/run/nagios2/nagios.cmd

seeing as it's a socket file that is created and removed every
time the server starts/stops, i'm inclined to change this.  any

also, fyi i've uploaded a new version of nsca with a new upstream
release as well as debian sources migrated to svn.
