[OSM-dev] Use API to get bbox of way/relation ids?

What's the best method of getting a bbox for a given way or relation  
id, using the API? Is it cached anywhere?

I'm using OSM element IDs as tags, and it would be great to have easy  
access to their bboxes. With long ways and recursive relations, doing  
it using repeated API calls could take forever...
