What we need is a common API, see attached an inital draft.

Good draft, good start.
I would like to raise attention towards parameters / datatypes: as elegant as "pythonic" solutions are, the API should be equally suitable for "service" implementation: that is, we should not use parameters that cannot be used via XML-RPC as least common denominator.

This is valid for any future API for whatever purpose.

A summary of "allowed" datatypes can be found at I would encourage the use of "dictionary" type parameters, explicitly the use of one single dictionary style parameter for that matter: simple and straightforward and yet very flexible.
