Good idea, but this gave me an even better idea. We can use an
embedded database directly for configuration instead of monitrc. I
have a good suggestion for a database: I'm using sqlite in zild and
I'm very happy with it. The nice thing is that sqlite is an embedded
database library which can be linked directly into monit. The actual
database is simply a (b-tree) file. Check out
<URL:> and let me know what you think. It's a
very cool database/library and very easy to use.

Ps. this doesn't mean that a central database is void, it's still a
good idea. You just got me started on this new idea :-)
