Better suggest what sort of API you want.

I will expose both command title and its UUID in 2.0, and I _plan_ to  
expose a (bundle) query system (so a command can technically lookup  
its own output), though probably not in 2.0.0. I am rather hesitant  
about these things because it limits my wriggle room, for example in  
this case, 2.0 has the output split into “format” and “place”, had I  
done API in 1.x for commands to query the system as-is it would just  
add to the headache of providing backwards compatibility.

In retrospect I am _very_ happy with the limited scriptability and  
plug-in API of 1.x :)
