  hum, we should add a flags extra data. And based on some IRC discussion
you already have an use for this.

  The API feels a bit dangerous to me, because this is a completely
unstructured API, you just get data, you have a priori no way to analyze
what it returns. But I understand why you need it and I don't see a workaround.
So I'm fine with this, it's a bit of a trick, it probably won't work 
in all cases, but it's still read only and allow to do some analysis,
so that's okay.
  Once you have commited the revised version of the API it woudl be nice
to not wait too much for the remote support if possible.

  I don't understand why those 2 are changed in this patch.
