I actually laughed :-)
> I started building an TYPO3-extension which outputs all the node-tree- and test-status-data via JSON. The gui is very basic (webApp) and its not very functional yet, yet it relays on data from a "live"-caretaker server. See  for a brief overview.
Wow, that looks really cool! I think it might even be the preferred choice to use a webApp in this case (of course, not if you want to learn code in Objective-C).

Very cool, I'd like to hear something about that. I'm planning pretty much the same (a table view based app). Martin mentioned that it is already possible to call messages the same way as the caretaker does and register new ones with an own extension. I haven't had very much time this weekend to dig into the caretaker code, but I think it might be pretty cool to use the already existing crypto and RPC stuff.
Although: as your JSON interface already works, reinventing the wheel is, of course, unnecessary.
