How about some wrapper frunctions in the backend that just call their
helper functions in the lib? Let's be honest maintaining all this code
twice will be very hard to do too. I'd prefer looking for a way to
integrate things. I have no problem with special backend syntax for some
functions. It's not that the API has to be identical. We could have an
open API and a backend API calling the same functions.
