I agree that the perl scripts are a pain; but all they do is make IMAP
connections.  You can do just about anything via IMAP.  There are
bindings floating around in Python & PHP as well that 'wrap' those
operations.  Someone using one of these to expose an API via SOAP,
XML-RPC, etc... would be very handy.
