Like it says in the title, is the total favorite count of a question exposed anywhere via the API? I know about the favorites method, but that looks like it will give you the specific favorites of a user, and not the number of times (or by who) a particular question has been favorited. Am I missing anything obvious?

("No" is a valid answer — I just want to make sure I'm not missing something obvious)

You just need to create and pass in a filter that will return favorite_count. For example, this query will return the information for this question, including

"favorite_count": 18
