My complaint was not that the API used in the code was non-optimal(which
I think was Tom's issue), but that the _user_ API was not very clean.
Not sure what to recommend, but I will think about it later.

That can be fixed/improved with minimal efforts, but if it is the internal
API usage, or the architecture we're bothered about, then IMO just an
overhaul of the code will not be sufficient, rather, it will require rework
from scratch.
