Pywikipedia already has those fallbacks, as it predates the useful API

Thank you very much John/Jack Phoenix and
I'm not sure you'll actually be able to dump that 90 % of code, because it
will probably be still needed as fallback/backwards compatibility method for
super-ancient MediaWiki releases and naughty sites hiding their APIs and
special pages, but it would be wonderful to rely less on it.
I'll write some specifications very soon.
