[MediaWiki-l] CentralAuth API access

John Doe-27
Central Auth has been around for about 5 years now and we still lack a
API to interact with it. There is no
blocking/unblocking/locking/unlocking ability at all. see
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23821 who do I need to
bribe/torture/put a fire underneath in order to get basic access to
said tools?

You know the rules:
If you suggest it and no one else volunteers,
then you are now the primary person in charge of getting it done...

We need some sort of think tank (well some thing with a better name)  
non-profit that people donate to. To have it hire people to crank out  
MediaWiki features outside of just the stuff WMF wants.

I'd love to spend 80% of my time cranking out fringe MediaWiki features  
where what the community wants and what my specialties are intersect.
