I agree with this, and I would add that my vision is that complete arch
clients (ie. comparable to tla) could be written using this interface. 
In the wiki is a suggestion for a GUI branch-visualization program that
draws diagrams of branches, subbranches, etc.  This is the kind of thing
that would be an ideal use of such wrappers.
