I'd be in favor of an API based off calling the interface directly for 
everything *if* we can come up with a backwards compatibility story somehow.

Anyway, doing the API we want shouldn't be too difficult. So let's 
assume we have that almost out of the way and let's start talking about 
making backwards compatibility work.
