I've updated the proposal. I've simplified the API quite a bit. I realized that we didn't need the methods for iterating over objects and object revisions, since we can use the existing storage iteration API and because, for FileStorage, simply iterating over the storage will more efficient. (It's possible that, at some time in the future, there could be an advantage for an iterator for oid/tid pairs that returns values in an order defined for the storage.)
