Agreed. UNKNOWN is a better default.

I like the idea of overloading die - keeps it v simple - but only if  
it doesn't need to be specified at the plugin script (eg, can we get  
it automatically just by use Nagios::Plugin?).

Also, does that mean the object will return the data? Or all the  
setup stuff is class data?
