It's not a big change, will commit support for that soon. With RNA a C
API with accessor functions for all properties could be autogenerated,
but that is not done currently.. there's no immediate application for
that as far as I can see, I think it would be mostly useful for C
plugins at some point.

It's in the RNA branch, there is a viewer for data using RNA in the
outliner, and docs in the wiki:
