      That would be nice. If there is no document outlining its design
      philosophy, that is not very conducive to taking it into account
      when researching existing APIs...

      Why not? The command-line arguments to compile are an API of sorts
      already. Assuming it were brought out in the open, so to speak, a priori
      I would have thought that it provides the kind of functionality required
      by IDE and Ant people. So, what do you dislike about it and what do you
      want from the new API?
