How about submitting the new functions to collectd? Either send a patch
to this list or (preferred) open a pull request on Github.

Sounds interesting. I'd go for creating a new project for that on some
project / code hosting site or making the code available through your
website (if available).

Also, I think it would make sense to add some notes about this to
<https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/Collectd-nagios> in a new section
(e.g. "Alternate approaches").

As a side-note: I've already had the idea of doing something similar
using Lua. The advantage of Lua would be that writing new code should
still be fairly easy for everybody but it could also fairly easy be
embedded into C programs. E.g. the mod-gearman worker comes to my mind
