[Cdash] CDash "api"

I would love there to be some sort of CDash API that would let me
access the data that CDash collects. Use cases:

1. Write your own script that checks the dashboard and does something
when the dashboard is in a certain state
2. Write new apps that pull data from CDash and organize it / display
it in new ways.

What you probably don't want is for people to write apps to constantly
scrape the full data of the system, but perhaps certain limited
queries would be useful.

Perhaps this could take the form of HTTP fetches from certain URLs
that return data formatted in XML instead of HTML. Mediawiki has a
similar feature


Does such a thing exist for CDash already? Should it?
