If we only use $ARG1$, we need to update all of the documentation that 
ships with the Nagios packages.  For example, the sample windows.cfg 
file that ships with nagios3-common includes the following code:

define service{
	use			generic-service
	host_name			winserver
	service_description	Memory Usage
	check_command		check_nt!MEMUSE!-w 80 -c 90

This matches the documentation that ships with nagios3-doc as well as 
the upstream documentation.  We could, of course, change all our 
internal documentation, but adding $ARG2$ makes the Debian packages 
function more closely like the upstream and has no negative impact on 
existing installations because $ARG2$ is ignored if empty.
