Package: nagios-plugins-standard
Version: 1.4.15-3squeeze1
Severity: normal

Upstream nagios has a config option for support the --extra-opts argument,
which allows storing extra options in a file (see
http://nagiosplugins.org/extra-opts). This is very helpful when using the mysql
nagios plugin, which requires a password --- I can stick my check definition in
nrpe.cfg, but read passwords out of a separate file (and avoid putting the
password in ps -AF output). It would be great if Debian could enable support
for this option prior to 1.5's release (when it will become the default) ---
Fedora already does enable it.
