This wouldn't be terribly useful. Status would have to be logged shorter 
than retry_check_interval so as to not send bogus data. It also clashes 
with arguments passed to the nrpe daemon, in which case it would have to 
cache the request as well as the answer. The saved cycles are quickly 
spent looking up the command executed and presenting the proper result 
for it.
