The whole thing is usable, yes, and I'm currently using the core of the
API in Feast: https://github.com/rmccue/Feast

It is just a start and it's soalphaithurts, so please don't use it in
production. Working with Backbone, I've made some small improvements to
it already (for example, renaming ID to id as per the Backbone convention).
