I'm currently working on a Qt-GUI for monotone, named "guitone". Well, this is not very far as of now, but I'm working on it quite hard to get something reasonable out there.

To communicate with monotone I wrote a wrapper around "monotone automate stdio", with which I can do basic things like checking the inventory (and the state of each item). Now, to do more advanced things like adding/dropping/renaming/committing items I can't use "automate" at all since the functionality does not exists in the interface yet. I could, of course, use the normal UI functionality to do these things, but

a) these are (will be?) language dependent and hard to parse therefor
b) I don't like to built two wrappers, one for stdio and one for all other calls...

So it would be really, REALLY nice if the automation interface would reflect the actual command set available through monotone, or, as a starting point, at least those things which are most-often used.
