Is there an easy way to tell if an answer is from the question poster?

I'm working on Blaze, and I'm grabbing answers from the /answers method. I'd like to indicate if the answer is from the question author.

I can't find a field on the answer to easily tell if it's from the asker. It seems to require multiple API calls. What's the cheapest way to do this?

Please add an is_self_answer field to the answer object.
