[Nagiosplug-devel] Plugin support for direct piping to NSCA?

I'm writing a few plugins that should be run locally. I'm checking hosts
that are behind other people's firewalls, so I am using NSCA.
I would like to publish my plugins, when they're working properly. Since
I'm using nsca, I have added an option '-N' (or '--nsca'), which changes
the output of the plugin to something that can be piped directly into
Is this a desirable way to do this, or do most people make use of a
wrapper script? Should I remove this option when publishing the plugins?
Additionally, when the plugin is used with 'send_nsca', I require two
more parameters to be passed to the plugin:
-H (--hostname=s), the host_name parameter in the service and host
-S (--servicedesc=s), the service_description parameter in the service
