Sure, but after the 3.0a1 release (slated for 8/31, i.e. this Friday).
We've got enough changes coming down the pike already that affect
every other file, and IMO this clearly belongs to the library reorg.
(I'm personally perfectly fine with getvalue(), but I understand
others don't see it that way.)
