Support for RequestUpdateCheckStatus

We have breaking API changes on our server that we want to roll out, and we
need all the people on old versions to upgrade, regardless of their choice
to disable updates. Is there a way to make it so that only the latest
version of the extension is supported?

I guess if not, this means we have to implement our own API for checking
the minimum supported API version, which is too bad since
RequestUpdateCheck would be perfect for this.
