First off all, that sounds more harsh than it should, sorry.

Second, to your (b): You can do that in one query with the madison part
of the api. Just provide the list of packages space seperated. Like

  b ->  only show info for binary TYPE
  c ->  only show info for COMPONENT(s)
  s ->  only show info for this suite
  S ->  show info for the binary children of source pkgs

Thats open.
