Not that I care a whole lot, but isn't this somewhat the same debate as
MySQL vs. one of the many forks?

Nagios is now an household brand in IT.  I would be very, very cautious
about dumping that out in favor of a recent fork.  I am all for doing a
competitive analysis, but please take market adoption into account.

(Not that I have any love for Nagios; it's hairy and bynzantine.  Just
saying that we should be cautious here.)
