have there been any thoughts whether Nagios::Plugin will be bundled or 
not? I like the libexec approach because we distribute the plugins 
independently from a central system since most plugins work out of the 
box without requiring any OS package-dependencies.

maybe check_file_age could stay as a symlink to check_file. --help could 
contain a warning message that check_file_age is deprecated and could be 
removed in the future.
