	There is already a tool to do a command line query.

	There is already an XML-RPC interface.

	That's a good idea. Please file a bug.

	This doesn't have to be contrib. I already have code that does

	That's not necessary--those links are already there in the
standard header.

	It's already in the header. Are you looking at bmo instead of

	Note that that's trivially implemented by adding a "cf_type"
