Comment (by chipbennett):

 I'm going to submit a patch for this, under a different ticket (I don't
 think an API is needed; just a core template tag).

 Over the past four years reviewing Themes, I have seen the breadcrumb
 navigation wheel re-invented many times over by Theme developers.
 Breadcrumb navigation is standard template functionality. Non-core
 solutions are sub-optimal, IMHO. Not having a core template tag for
 breadcrumb navigation forces Theme developers either to rely on a Plugin
 for basic template functionality, or else develop custom code for a very
 common feature. Relegating breadcrumb navigation to Plugin territory would
 be analogous to saying `paginate_links()` or
 `posts_nav_link()`/`previous_posts_link()`/`next_posts_link()` are Plugin
