Are you thinking of tests like 0% and 100% and check if the plugin exits 
critical/ok or do you think of sth more in depth? I could imagine a test 
using actual data as a threshold would be better, but that would require 
a percent-calculation-routine - and I'm not sure if there should be that 
much logic in the tests.

Sorry for that.. no problem. I guess a tar/gz (attached) should be 
alright. Please contact me if not.

I tried to change as few as possible.
Thank you


P.S I found two minor errors in the initially sent regex patch. They are 
fixed in the attached file.
