  Yes I think that has been on the back of everybody's mind since
the beginning, but we were not confident enough in the set of properties
doing it internally would be good, then at some point we may even expose
it in the API, but there is no hurry.
  On the other hand cleaning up the domain code mess (incredible how simple
things become complex as the code is extended) with new internal structures
and APIs in the same way would be a really great thing. But that should
probably wait a little bit I feel we are too close to the next release for
this,
