Actually the results should be identical. However, up to now and ix may
have unlimited numbers of ixlans. That will change with the next release
where each ix exactly has one ixlan. Even with exactly the same id (i.e.
ix_id == ixlan_id). That's the reason we will be able to drop ixlan in
V3 completely.

Is the database table layout public somewhere? And is it relevant? We
are always only talking about API objects so far.
