I didn't had a look into this plugin especialy, but usualy plugins found at 
exchange.nagios.org are "fire and forgot". This means there is no real 
(upstream) maintainer for such a plugins.

Anyways ... we won't include extra plugins from other sources into the nagios-
plugins source package. One reason is the problem with unreliable upstream 
maintainance. This is a problem we have already, as I included check_bgpstate 
and check_linux_raid from contrib/ dir. This directory is included in nagios-
plugin upstream, but this plugins aren't also initiated by the upstream 
project, but provided by third party. Upstream wants to get rid if this 
directory for the same reason, as we don't want include extra plugins into the 
nagios-plugin package ... no maintainance by the origin author of this 

Anyways ... this issue pops up sometimes and we had a discussions in the past 
to start an additional source package where we drop in usefull plugins from 
various sources. Unfortunately nobody came up with a good solution nor did 
anybody found time to create such a package yet.

Cheers, Jan.
