[Nagiosplug-devel] performance data output and locale settings

i encountered a problem that affects collecting performance data. If the 
locale is not C or similar, then the performance data may have a 
different number format. Example: with german locale the performance 
data of check_disk and check_dns (and others) contain a "," instead of a 
"." as decimal point.
In the plugin development guide 
the "," is not allowed. Nagios addons that parse the performance data 
may also be started with another locale and cannot guess the number format.
