Thanks for adding those. That's the sort of thing that can make a real
difference for people who're exploring some of the corners of the software.

I would note that the interface is not guaranteed to be stable, or
continue working, as the program evolves though. It's a rather more
direct exposure of the C++ innards than the scripter usually provides,
making it simpler and more flexible - but also rather more prone to
subtle breakage and the effects of internal API changes.
