[Nagiosplug-devel] acknowledgement status macro

I'm trying to write a small script that works similar to the cluster2 plugin

Basic idea:
problem states for several services are passed through and aggregated in the new plugin, any criticals / warnings are alerted appropriately.
if a service enters critical state without being acknowledged, the new plugin goes to critical state, and when the problem has been acknowledged the plugin moves back to warning 
state, this way if another service attached to the plugin goes critical I get a new critical alert for the clustered cervice.

So I want to be able to have the acknowledgement status passed up the chain to the plugin, however I cannot find a macro for the acknowledgement status.  does such a beast exist or 
am I doomed to failure until nagios is updated to include it?
