Make property info (data type, labels) available via the API
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

The essential info about properties should be available via the API in an efficient way that does not involve loading full entities.

Essentially, we'd want a web API for PropertyInfoStore and PropertyLabelResolver.

bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

@Kunal: no - wbgetentities retrieves the full blob from the text storage backend and filters the output. This is a LOT slower than getting the appropriate info from PropertyInfoStore and PropertyLabelResolver.

We could optimize these special cases in wbgetentities, or create a separate api module. But we should do one of these two.
