Agreed. CPAN is about reusing other bits of code. However, some  
pointers to "good implementations" in CPAN might be helpful.

Longer term, we probably need to think about how to handle module  
dependencies for a given check_* script. Distributing a plugin to 100  
boxes might prove problematic if there is a large list of dependencies.
