Hello Alexander,

ISTM that you did not answer about my point that the current configuration 
file is misleading, as the 'dont_blame_nrpe' option is ignored but there 
is no warning about that fact in the file nor in the log. If it had been 
the case, I would have lost much less time.

You may understand that the decision you took to remove a feature was not 
a good one. This feature already had clear caveats that allow admins to 
make an informed decision, as the grownups they are. Mostly.

I already contribute to several free softwares, although not by 
maintaining Debian packages: I cannot do everything, that is life.

I know I (probably) can, but then I have to manage de deployment and so, a 
significant effort which should not have been needed in the first place.
