Documented in get_sites

#' A helper to list_sites. Gets site IDS from sciencebase w/ simple data query
#' 
#' Collects from sciencebase all site names ("site_root" titles, e.g., 
#' "nwis_02948375") or the names of sites containing a particular var_src 
#' dataset, and returns as a character vector of those site names
#' 
#' @param with_dataset_name limit sites to those with children matching the 
#'   specified ts or other dataset name (e.g., "ts_doobs_nwis")
#' @inheritParams ts_has_file
#' @param limit integer. the maximum number of items to return
#' @return a character vector of "site_root" titles (keys)
