There needs to be a separation between private (to the server) and
public (exposed to the plugins) structures, we can't just expose all of
then without creating a mess as it might later hinder our ability to
modify or fix internal structures without causing havoc for the plugins.
We should be looking at this on a case-by-case basis. Or we decide to
not guarantee stability on the exposed structures. What do you prefer?
