I think it's sth that should be thought about. Recently there was a 
discussion about redundant plugins in the cvs.
Could a NP-CPAN lead to redundant plugins like eg check_http check_http2 

I haven't reviewed many plugins, but in my opinion (i'm not the greatest 
coder) there are already some plugins at nagiosexchange,
which are improvable. What do you think about it? Is there enough 
attention paid to the Guidelines?
