Hrm.. I can't find it either. I guess we never made one publicly but
only internally.

We have an implementation of the API at [1] though. Think of
"ArchiveRequest" as "Promise".

An alternative approach would be to expose a read-only version of the
Directory interface defined in [2]. That's definitely more complex,
but has the advantage that it in the future could allow code sharing
with filesystems.
