I'm sorry that we were pushing you towards ignoring the APIs. It's just that,
to implement new APIs, somebody has to do the work, and nobody seems to be
volunteering to do it at the moment.

I am now reasonably convinced that we should provide a "depth=1" API to do
this. If you would like to implement it and send a patch, that would be great.

There was a general move in favour of providing "depth=0", "depth=1" and
"depth=infinity" for all operations, but so far only a few operations implement
all three options.
