The place I see the api being most useful is when
people want to provide some sort of portal to GNE.
Think of GNE rather like a big fat database, so the
web site becomes a portal to GNE, not GNE itself. We
obviously won't be making all the portals, because we
won't have time and I'm sure other people will think
of lots of other ideas beyond ours of web/cd/desktop
program. So if we created libraries and modules for
the most common languages (i.e. perl, php and C/C++)
which all interpret the same sorts of commands, then
we could give developers a very easy platform on which
to develop portals. So for a simple query, users might
do this (in perl for e.g.):


And then the commands for php and C could be very,
very similar.
