The attached patch against 4.x-master would do something like that - an 
"acceptonly:cpu,disk,conn,http" in hosts.cfg on the relevant hosts, and 
xymond will then match incoming tests against that entry and only 
process those that are permitted.

For hosts without an acceptonly-setting, the overhead should be fairly 

(It compiles, but otherwise it is untested).

JC, feel free to veto it if you think it would be too much overhead.
