If there is no real need for it, I would prefer to keep the name of the 
package nagios (like we did with the previous majot update). There is no 
use in installing 2 nagios versions next to each other and, to be frank, 
nobody should be automatically updating packages from RPMforge anyway.

I have confidence that Christoph will do a much better job maintaining 
Nagios than me, so I fully support Christoph's decision on this one.
