[open] New API functions IsVampire() / GetVampireStage()

Could we please get 2 new API functions. The Wererwolf functions already exist some years but for vampirism we got nothing.

Code:
IsVampire() -> Return boolean true/false
GetVampireStage() -> Return number:nilable vamprirism stage (or nil if not a vampire)
Many thanks!

This is from VampRemind.lua which is one of the files in my Reminderz addon:

Code:
-- VampireStageType
NOT_A_VAMPIRE = 0
VAMPIRE_STAGE_1 = 135397
VAMPIRE_STAGE_2 = 135399
VAMPIRE_STAGE_3 = 135400
VAMPIRE_STAGE_4 = 135402

-- * IsVampire()
-- ** *bool* _isVampire_
function IsVampire()
	return (GetVampireStage() ~= NOT_A_VAMPIRE)
end

-- * GetVampireStage()
-- ** _Returns:_ *VampireStageType* _vampireStage_, *number:nilable* _timeEnding_, *string:nilable* _vampireStageName_, *string:nilable* _iconFileName_
function GetVampireStage()

	for n = 0, GetNumBuffs("player") do
		local buffName, timeStarted, timeEnding, _, _, iconFilename, _, _, abilityType, _, abilityId, _, _ = GetUnitBuffInfo("player", n)
		if (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_1) or (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_2) or (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_3) or (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_4) then
			return abilityId, timeEnding, buffName, iconFilename 
		end
	end

	return NOT_A_VAMPIRE, nil, nil, nil, nil 
end

Thanks, have something similar in LibVampire I think, but have not updated it for a long while now

Hint
You can easeand speed-up such ifs
Code:
if (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_1) or (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_2) or (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_3) or (abilityId == VAMPIRE_STAGE_4) then
by the help of a simple table with key = abilityId and value = boolean true:

Lua Code:
  1. local vampireStages = {
  2.  [VAMPIRE_STAGE_1] = true,
  3.  [VAMPIRE_STAGE_2] = true,
  4.  [VAMPIRE_STAGE_3] = true,
  5.  [VAMPIRE_STAGE_4] = true,
  6. }
  7. if vampireStages[abilityId] then
