Primarily to make it easier to add new protocol tests and some form of plugin 
system based on execution of external scripts/programs. The following is a 
draft specification of what we plan:

# This is our "plugin" solution allowing users to specify an external
# program to run and test from inside Monit.
check script xyz /path {
        each <timespec>    # When to run the test
        timeout <n sec>    # Optional timeout script
        case return?value
                0: ...alert
                1: ...action2
                2: ...action1, action2, action3

Maybe also add the option to execute a script or a program and test return 
value from an "if-test"
