That doesn't mean that nagvis is broken, since it only recommends
ndoutils-mysql. If it's a real runtime non-optional dependency, it makes
nagvis RC buggy.

Never assume that! It was rc-buggy (#560681, causing some data-loss) and
that's why it was removed. Its maintainer didn't try to get it back in
testing. It has been out of testing for over than 7 months now...

Nothing depends on it (unless I'm on crack), so how its removal can have 
a significant effect for the nagios "ecosystem" in Squeeze?

Which is not high...
