makes sense.  

for check_ntp.c it'd probably be best to save that for 1.5 as well,
as it's a rather large code-rewrite and even if we get the rest of the
code together it could probably stand to use some testing.  of course
i'll let you know if my opinion on the matter changes :)

we may as well keep check_apt out of the point release as well;  while
i feel fairly confident in the code that's there, i may want to change
cmdline options and imiplementation details in the immediate future.

yeah, that's kind of strange.  it looks to me like check_udp could
be fully removed and replaced by a symlink to check_tcp.  really,
we ought to call the plugin check_socket, and symlink check_tcp
to that, since it supports tcp, udp, and unix sockets :)
