as far as transitioning goes, i think the biggest omission right now
is simply documentation.  we can probably defer to docs provided
by upstream for most of this, but we should have something in
README.Debian pointing to that i guess, since that will be where
lots of debian folks go to look.

earlier today i threw in some stuff to make 1.x url support even
easier using debconf/maintscript logic/ucf on apache2.conf.

however, there are still some refinements/fixes that can be made 
with the nagios2-only stuff.  most specifically, i think we can
do more for the design and implementation of a default

specifically, some of the default checks (ping/procs) are not
working out of the box, and i'm thinking there may be more we
can monitor as well.  i haven't looked very deeply into this though.

also, i think the "default stuff" we generate (whether on the fly or
shipped) should be cut out and seperated from the other more general
defaults, such that someone could cut out what we provide more easily
and our changes will be also more localized.

anyway, i'll be taking a nagios break for a couple days, if you'd
like to chip in on the above or anything else please feel free.
