I don't think it's worth it. Let me explain: the existing
"convenience" API is there only because it enables to user to do some
tasks quickly, hence the usage of the ellipsis in C to pass
parameters: the programmer known what he wants and it is "staticaly"
For a more general purpose I prefer that the user use the full API
because otherwise the final API will be made only of convenience
functions which is not what I want.

Thanks anyway for proposing to improve things,
