    Hy there!

    This update could be very nice. If you finish it, please send it
on the list, because me and some of my colleagues  were also thinking
about such a patch. For example we could use it to make unsupported
checks (like IPv6, DNS (if this is not supported), LDAP, etc.)


    P.S.: I've not used monit to much, so if this use case is already
possible, please someone point me in the right direction.
