That sounds good, I thought it´s much more work. In fact I was just

Thanks for the info about OAuth. I´ll read about it as soon as I can.
One thing about the API: Wouldn´t it be nice to include the cursor

two weeks. The JSON stuff is mostly implemented but the REST part,
authentication and the UI still needs to be done...
