there's an enhancement in the making for 1.9 but that's not released so 
far. Though you might find the code in the git dev branches (as usual, 
use at your own risk).

no. that will be deprecated in 1.9, an announcement is pending. right 
direction - yes. good ideas - yes. maintenance and bug level - not to 
work with. same goes for the sla idoutils setting which was considered 
only for the tackle cronk, and icinga reporting never used it too (as it 
ran into major performance issues). as remarked, such announcements will 
be made once it's really marked as deprecated (todo for me somewhere in 
2013).

so far,
michael
