Interestingly, *just* getting the names and ids for a 1500 card stack is
only about 15 times faster using the functions rather than a loop that gets
each individually.

For my purposes I have to parse the results anyway, which reduces the ratio
to about 6 times faster. Enough that I'll definitely rewrite the code, but
less than I would have expected.
