[Pkg-monitoring-maintainers] monitoring scripts

The mon and mon-contrib packages have monitor scripts that return 0 when
everything is ok. When there is an error they return non-zero and give plain
text explaining the problem to stdout. This is such an obvious way to do
things on a Unix system that surely others have done the same thing.
Do we have a list of packages that have such monitoring scripts?
Should we work towards a common place to store such scripts so that different
monitoring packages could share them? I don't want to waste time writing
scripts to probe IMAP servers etc if someone else has already written them -
and possibly written them to test for error conditions I haven't thought of
At the above Wiki page I've documented the mon configuration directories. The
overall mon wiki documentation is still at early stages (it's massively
inadequate if you want to have a useful working system) but has enough about
this for a discussion.
