	Well it's put as "apache | apache-ssl | httpd" which should
allow any web server package to be used however the packaging at this
time only knows how to try and configure itself to run on apache or
apache-ssl...

	By changing debian/control so that it "Suggests" the web server
rather than depends on it you could setup a distributed monitoring
system with Nagios as listed on the Nagios documentation[1]. Also it
made more sense to change the "Depends" to "nagios-plugins |
netsaint-plugins (>= 1.2.9.4-7)" rather than as a "Suggests" or
"Recommends" as Nagios doesn't make much sense without them...
