Despite reading the commits that you referenced, I still don't feel
competent to fix this myself so I gratefully accept your offer.
Ideally, whatever complexity is needed would be hidden in the functions
stat_validity_check() and stat_validity_update() added by patch 09/12 of
my series, and possibly match_stat_data() from 08/12.

Let me know if I can help.
