I would prefer to make the performance data part of the 1.3.x release and 
release 1.3.0 with additional stable plugins.

It would also be useful to discuss the overall size of the retrun string 
and its impact in the nagios architecture.  We are currently limited by 
the size on the non-interleaved pipe message size for passively submitted 
results.  Do we want to differentiate plugins between active and passive 
(I would think not..)

I thinks if a list of parameters to be measured from the existing plugins 
could be developed (via contributions :) then we could decide on a base 
set of parameters and naming guidelines for the parameters.

as much as possible for the perfdata - does this mean that nagios core 
would have to support aggregate perfdata in addition to aggregate status?
