anyone who has any thought about other types of clients for
use with Box Backup? For example a Java API for webapps
or similar?

I wrote a small perl application that basically connects, handshakes,
and logs in to the box server... until I realized perl is usually not very
64-bitish by default. Then I did the same thing in Java "just for fun".

Has anyone else have any more or less ongoing plans for things
like this? I thought I would ask before I spend too much time playing
around with this.

Another thought is it would be great to be able to administer user
accounts, limits etc via the Box protocol in order to be able to build
for example a webapplication for Box central administration and
another one to let users handle their archives.
