[Nagiosplug-help] Pushing Nagios plugins over ssh

Hi all.  I have created a bit of infrastructure to aid in pushing nagios 
plugins to remote machines with nothing more than an ssh connection. 
nrpe and nsca became too much of a hassle to maintain across many client 
machines.  This solution allows centralize configuration and a very 
light installation on the clients.  Due to our range of architectures, 
I've also rewritten the plugins we need in python so as to be able to 
run without recompilation.

I've posted the details and plugins at: 

I'd love to see at least the nagios-push-ssh integrated into the 
nagios-plugins package.

Perhaps this should be posted on nagiosplug-devel, but I'll avoid a 
double post for now.
