 How would that work with the URL style of querying?  i.e. something like?




 Of course the latter would be ugly is urlencoded, but...

 And what would be the options made available?  The only two that come to
 mind are `id+title`, `id+slug` and `*` the latter of which is of course
 the default, but I'm sure there are other use-case needs that don't occur
 to me at the moment.
