Because it can't be trusted, so it's not really worth anything. It
can be doable so it's trusted in future versions, and then we will
most likely add it. That can't be done until we change logging
version though, which most likely won't be done until Nagios 4. As a
consolation, Nagios 4 probably isn't that far off.

It's likely we add this to all external commands rather than just some
of them. It's easier to discard the information once it's there than it
is to figure it out after you realize you need it, and it makes the code
simpler and therefore faster and less prone to bugs.

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.
