Actually I thought of further things I'd make such a cron job do (this could easily be a simple bash or perl script)...

- if the files have changed, check their times against the time nagios last restarted and warn if they are newer (as the changes aren't being picked up by the running nagios)
- run a config check and warn if restarting would fail due to errors.
