solution would be to submit a patch to add it ;) You can look at
includes/actions/InfoAction.php for the implementation of action=info,
and includes/api/ApiQueryInfo.php would probably be the right place to
put it in the API.
As a workaround for number of edits, you could simply use
prop=revisions&rvprop=&rvlimit=max and count the number of revisions
you get back.
