I'm not really a developer, but I do tend to log my activities across several sites and being able to script via a REST (or similar) API would be brilliant.

Dan - it should be along the lines of:

1) register for some developer keys
2) use the keys to grab a token
3) accompany your request with the token

The above will give you the scope to adjust things within your own account, but it'll also be possible for users to authorise an app to act on their behalf.

add another to the list. Scripting mainly, although will play with proper development during non-working periods. Been looking for a project to keep me occupied during the darker nights :-)
