  Well I would not modify cmdDomblkstat and instead create a new command
and a new function for the new API

 yes but the new API will provide informations in a different order
and is potentially more expensive, so I'm not sure I really want to use
the new API for the old command
 Maybe something like "domblkfullstat"...

 But if someone else disagrees with me I'm fine being in the minority :-)
