Click & Drop support

I've had no choice but to build a friend an API wrapper (which just automates Click and Drop in Chrome) in order to ensure his business doesn't fall over from scaling. Simple things like:
* Apply more dynamic/complex shipping rules
* Add more text/images to the generated labels (waiting on getting a business account so this is not available there)
* Custom format A4 4x6 labels to put dispatch notes on the same sheet as the postage label
* Sync dispatch status from external systems to Click and Drop rather than vice-versa
I'm aware some of these features already exist if you have OBA with Click and Drop, but I had thought the business account was the trick to access the API for true automation - but based on reading the previous comments, I am no longer hopeful that it does.
If anyone has any interest in using this as a bridging solution until RM get a stable version of their own API out, please reach out to me (username is my email address) and I'd be happy to help.
