Nagios is separate and independent from the cgis.

Nagios currently uses the embedded perl interpreter to execute perl 
plugins without the additional overhead of starting the interpreter 

The only way you can use it currently is to write perl plugins.

When you say extension - what type of extension are you envisioning?
On the cgi/web interface? or on the scheduling/monitoring side?
