Yeah, that looks like a fine solution to me.

To be honest, I doubt that it is even necessary to handle the backwards
compatibility. The checkstat option never actually worked, statinfo was
never advertised, and the broken state was available in only one
release. So I'd be very surprised if anyone more than the author was
actually using it.

Still, it is not that hard to handle both, so I suppose it is better to
be conservative.
