The new architecture of removing the external tools and transferring zip files around over HTTP lends itself rather well to this... I'd love to be able to stream a module zip file to a io.Reader without having to fork internal packages.
Sorry, but I'm not willing to support Go API access, because then if you have a stale tool then your tool will do old things. In contrast if your tool runs the go command-line to find out what it needs, then it will not need to be updated after and stay in sync with each Go release.
We're going to work on command-line API, as I said.
