Hello Glen,

I was wondering how that related to the Admin-only API that Sandy
implemented for Bexar:


(summary: a allow_admin_api flag adds access to
pause/suspend/diagnostics/... through the "regular" API)

Is it a complement, a replacement, something completely different ?

>From what I can read, it looks like your Admin API would introduce
higher-level actions, like "suspend all in an account", so it would be
complementary ?
