We do not expect every data source implementation to support every type of action; some will be 'read-only', and hence will not support things like updating etc. We can (and do) already throw NotImplemented? exceptions if these functions are called, but we should really not call them in the first place if the implementation is not able to do it anyway.

So the proposal is to add a method that returns what the datasource can and cannot do (iteration, updating, journaling, perhaps more) so any callers can more cleanly handle cases where these are not supported.
