Exactly this complexity is why i would not want the nagios config parts
on the centos wiki. Describing that is a nagios topic not a centos
I do some nagios support here and there and the biggest problem in most
cases is that users did not completely read the nagios docs, which is
absolutely necessary in my opinion.

Well i don't want to shrink the content on the wiki for no good reason.
Also i don't want to destroy other contributors hard work.
