Hi Maintainers,

sorry for my bad english... 

We were wondering why an "apt-get install nagios-nrpe-plugin" would
also install apache2. The dependency chain is:

- nagios-nrpe-plugin recommends nagios3
- nagios3 depends nagios3-common
- nagios3-common recommends apache2

We know thats possible to disable this behavoir by setting the
APT::Install-Recommends Variable.

But we are wondering if this dependency chain is as they want? Do You
have any plans to change it in future? 

Thank You!
