This wish is open

Description

I'd like an API to be in place to allow external programs to post blog entries. Most major blogs have such an API in place, and it can be extremely helpful. For instance, many mobile smartphones might be able to run software that could make use of the API, but most have really crappy browsers. Also functionality like future post dates could be implemented in the client software instead of Wikidot having to add it themselves.

Examples of Blog APIs:
MetaWeblog API
WordPress API
Blogger API

Example of programs using Blog APIs:
Windows Live Writer for Windows
Tblogger for Windows Mobile

Wikidot TOS:
Obviously the TOS prohibit automated usage that is not "officially available". Were wikidot to incorporate a blog API, it would be officially available and it would not violate the TOS.
