[Linux-cluster] Clustat exit code for service status

Hi all,

Command clustat -s <service name> gives status of service.

If service is started (i.e. running on some node), exit code of this command
is 0, if however service is not running, its exit code is non-zero (found it
to be 119).

Is this right and going to be continued in subsequent cluster versions as
well? Reason I am asking this, is if I can use this command in shell script
to give status of service -

clustat -s <service name>
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
  echo "service is up"
  echo "service is not up"
