The patches probably can be forward ported easily. But I have not tried.

It's there in the patches :) There's some accompanying documentation on how
it works, but the changes to the Nessus code are not really describe

would go to the knowledge base goes also into a database.
The patch includes the database code (which probably can be reused "as is")
as well as the hooks in the Nessus code.
