I checked the existing bug reports, but oversaw bug #736331. I didn't
saw that there were interpersonal issues that causes forks of this
package. Now there are two projects maintained by two different teams.

I don't know which is the best way forward. It probably makes sense to
make it possible to ship both packages in Debian and let the user decide
which project is "better" and "wins".

To make them co-installable, both project should pick new binary package
names and the nagios-plugins packages should become transitional package
and go away.
