I'd love to have something like that in Flickr::API2 :)

ie. A way to ask for photos, and to be given back an iterator of
Flickr::...::Photo objects, rather than the current method which is
just a big hash of keys that vary depending on what objects you've
been given.

(Hey, but at least it's an improvement on the old CPAN module, which
returned an XML::Parser::Lite::Tree document and expected you to know
how to query Yet Another XML Module.)


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
