What do other think about this?

I wasn't entirely convinced when check_nt was added into the  
distribution, and similarly I'm not sure why check_nc_net should be  
added either. We don't include check_nrpe as part of the  
distribution, though we do include check_by_ssh, which is an "agent"  
type plugin.

I think I'm worried that the client code needs to be kept in sync  
with the server code, so should be kept together. It doesn't help  
anyone if Nagios Plugins distributes old code.

I'd be more comfortable if there was an RFC or some other published  
location that detailed what the comms between the client and server  
are. At least this says that there is some fixed standard, so then we  
can say that the one distributed by us is conforming to a particular  

That's probably the difference between check_by_ssh and check_nrpe/ 
check_nt/check_nc_net - the interface for the agent communication is
