I'm fine with this in principle, but I think it should be held until  
the "next big release".

My remaining checklist items for 1.4.3 is:
   - knock off some more bugs and patches in the tracker
   - fix tests so that everything passes at http:// 

check_udp is the only one that fails at the moment. It looks like  
there is functionality for check_udp in check_tcp, which I am trying  
to understand at the moment.
