For those following the nagiosplug CVS tree

check_ifstatus has been upgraded to a standard plugin and can be found in 
plugin-scripts directory.

The upgrade has required changes in the options that the plugin takes to 
conform to the plugin guidelines.. (no positional arguments in particular)

Also removed was a Cisco specific OID to allow for more general use.
