Cricket "is a good thing" (tm) as Martha Stewart would say in the US.

As you will note cricket uses a dbm... Ethan proposed the same thing - a
dbm sitting between the nagios core and the cgi.

The cgi's would not have to read the config files at all.

Nagios would read the config files on startup and generate the dbm with
appropriate data and update it with status info as well.

Other apps could read the dbm as well and push data into a sql database
for those who need it. This would separate the need to maintain a sql
interface inside the nagios core.
