i didn't mean to say any interfaces are lacking - i was referring to the
use of the internal web browser to access these web ui functions. i've
yet to implement any remote interaction via json-rpc but tunneling these
calls through a secure protocol is probable the next step to automate
this type of interaction.

what exactly do you mean by machine-readable output ?

I'm wondering which remote interaction commands would be most valuable ?
some i've come up with are importing the android eclipse sdk process
view and apply it to mesh nodes, updating through rpc / ssh, possible
extending it for netstat ouput, tracking / issuing remote routing
commands & enabling / disabling services... people with actual freimap
use experience would probable come up with a completely different list
though ; )
