Default Opening up API for server list

Hey, I'm not sure if this is a possibility, but currently accessing information about servers and their availability is limited to within Altitude. If an API was opened up, we developers could really enhance this aspect of the game.

An example app would be for Mac. Wouldn't it be nice if we (me, probably) could create an app that shows the current status of servers, and the number of people in them? Maybe we could even go so far as to get access to the people *inside* the server? It would really be awesome.

Just a thought.

This can be done via a parser reading the live log and reporting the current status somewhere. True and API would make it easier on a community dev's side, but in theory this could be done. If you are wanting to hit any server in Alti without the owner's permission, then this isn't viable, but imo shouldn't be done anyway.

I agree that the server shouldn't have to list all the people connected to it, but at the bare minimum it should be able to provide the count of people currently connected to it.
