fyi, there is work going on to achieve just that. One such project is 
APAN (http://apan.sourceforge.net) which creates pipes nagios plugin 
result data (i.e., ping results or disk space) to RRDs and allows 
viewing of the results from the Nagios web GUI. However, it's not simple 
to get working cohesively. Another option is utilizing Nagios' built in 
perfdata (http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/1_0/perfdata.html)
