you could use Module::Load (which is a perl core module) to do that:

use Module::Load qw/load/;
eval {
  load Monitoring::Plugin, qw/required exports/;
if($@) {
  load Nagios::Plugin, qw/required exports/;

Or just stay with Nagios::Plugin till the old systems fade out. You can use Monitoring::Plugin by the name "Nagios::Plugin" as well. It comes
with a compatibility module.
