I agree with this notion.
Also my strategy would be to keep the tools orthogonal to what Kolab Server
comes with or find a very good one. I do not know enough knowledge
to compare munin to all the other solutions to similiar problems I have seen.

I would maintain that Kolab Server is already pretty "pluggable" due to its
Unix philosophy. Of course I am still looking forward to your proposal. :)
