We have two sets of users:
 - those that write to the API, including casual scripters
 - those that don't.

I think users that don't write to the API at all will only see 'nested
tree support coming along'. It may not make much or any difference to

I think users (which includes us) that write to the API will see most of
the things I enumerated bite them repeatedly. Its worth noting that such
users include sysadmins doing precommit hooks, integration into
buildbots and other such tasks.
