Took a quick look at this.  It looks great!  Right now, I just have a 
script that runs each time a new host is added to LDAP.  Can autom8 be 
configured to look at an LDAP directory and create graphs for hosts once 
added?  Or is it better to just do that integration on my own?

This is what I'm using now.  The script works fine, but I don't have it 
looking at LDAP yet.

What did you end up doing for nagios?  I have puppet configuring nagios 
right now, but that only seems to work for hosts configured by puppet 
(which isn't all of my hosts).
