Are we limited to the Wordpress API?

  1. Looking at the WP API I thought that we're limited a lot, e. g. it's not possible to query a list of installed plugins. Is this correct or IS there a way to perform such actions?

  2. There are currently no XML-RPC methods for getting a list of installed plugins (nor an AtomPub collection). This is something that has been discussed though.

  3. Is it possible to create some sort of plugin for this? This plugin would interact with the WordPress for Android app. Would this be a big lack of security, I mean, after all, the plugin would require a valid username and password to get the plugin list.

  4. On the WordPress side it's very easy to add new XML-RPC methods via a plugin. However none of the clients (like WP on the Android) will know anything about it.
