For the archives, I figured out that I had opted for regex support in
nagios.cfg, and thus I *had* to use regex.  So, a .* works fine.

That said.  I wish I could just indicate a default icon for a given
service - is this an option?

Also, can I use macros in the extserviceinfo?  like $HOSTADDRESS$ in the
notes_url?  this would save a LOT of time :)  Notably, I'll be
experimenting with this, so I may be replying to myself in a little
while on this subject as well.
