DK Tech Preview: a RESTful API

Someone emailed me a while back asking me if DKos had an API for people to access the site programatically. It had never occurred to me to have something like that before, but I can see how it would be handy. I also wrote a perl client for Voxel's hAPI for some of their services, so I had been thinking about it over the last couple of weeks again. I'm still feeling kind of sick and achy from being sick since last week, so I decided to start working on one (since hopefully I wouldn't have to think too hard), using Voxel's hAPI as inspiration.
