The problem is that an API is always going to be complex if the data you 
are processing doesn't match the type system of the language used to 
process it (I hate the term "impedance mismatch" but that's what we're 
talking about). To make programming easy, you either have to design a 
data format that matches the programming language (JSON-JS), or you have 
to design a programming language that matches the data (XML-XSLT).
