Far easier for a first implementation. I guess we swiftly need a proposal for the "Manifest API".

Note that one of Philip's suggestion's (maybe not on the list? I can't 
remember.) was that we do the API before we do the manifest work.  This 
would allow us to iterate, test and figure out what worked before 
figuring out what we needed in the manifest.
