this sounds good to me, if it does not take too much time to recognize, that the server does not support TLS for the SSLv3 users.

Another option, which maybe is easier to implement, would be a line in the configuration file, to let the user choose which version of SSL/TLS to use.

Since I am not a programmer, I do not know how this is handled typically.
