[Nagiosplug-devel] perfdata routines

There is a standard perfdata routine which is in utils.c. However, this
expects parameters to be ints. For check_load, the data returned is floating
point numbers, which means we get rounded figure for perfdata which loses a
lot of information.

Would it make sense for perfdata to expect all figures as floats instead? I
think this is more flexible and a bit more perl-like (where all numeric
scalars are floating point numbers). I guess a complaint would be
speed/memory, but that should be alright in the world of super-fast

Any other opinions?
