thank you very much for your code :) I'm currently a bit undecided in
which direction I want the threshold checking / monitoring stuff to go.
The two general direcions are:

 1) Improve the threshold code as it currently exists.
 2) Favor to use the filter machanism to check values and dispatch
    notifications / do other stuff. The existing <Threshold /> block(s)
    should then be translated to appropriate filters.

Implementing (1) is probably a lot easier, but I think that (2) may be
easier to extend in the future. 

What do you think?
