While everyone's interested in alternative APIs, I will again point
everyone to the 2002-09-25 proposal of DotGNUstep, the OpenStep API
implemented in C#:

No, my friend, the way to have good and safe government, is not to trust it
all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly
the functions he is competent to.  It is by dividing and subdividing these
republics from the national one down through all its subordinations, until it
ends in the administration of every man's farm by himself; by placing under
every one what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best.
