I'm (at least trying - their list needs admin approval) to cross post 
this to nagios guys, guess it's worth enough if they'd hang on.

When configuring our institutes Icinga I found my self at some point in 
the need for a feature the lets me "chain" commands, which would be 
especially handy when e.g. doing remote checks, or making many different 
types of notifications, or possibly when using advanced plugins like 

For both Icinga and Nagios I've opened feature requests in the ticket 
system which (IMHO) thoroughly describe the ideas and benefits behind 
"command expansion":

I had a quick glance over the Icinga source code (guess the Nagios code 
is in the core parts still not too different) but honestly I could not 
even find where I'd have to hook in.

So given that I think this would be really a generally useful feature, 
I'd like to bring this to some wider audience here and ask for comments,
