I see that this page was last edited in 2008. Is there any progress here, especially in creating an API? I see that there is a generic MediaWiki API at http://en.wiktionary.org/w/api.php, but it doesn't have anything Wiktionary specific, like a call fetching the synonyms or the etymology of a word. There seem to be some ideas in http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/User:Conrad.Irwin/How_about_an_API with proposals of how to do it (though I don't understand all of it due to unfamiliarity with the workings templates and such).
