[rt-users] rt cli/REST interface - roadmap?

I note that there was some mention of cleaning up the REST interface as 
a potential SoC project.

I've been somewhat stymied here by the REST interface - in particular, 
it's not clear how (or if it's even possible to) do the following -

	rt list -t user ...
	- determine user's group membership
	- determine/set privileged status
	- list group members

Given that the REST interface appears to lean heavily on the 
SearchBuilder-provided functionality, it doesn't look like it might be 
overly onerous to tackle this. Currently the paucity of the REST / rt 
command-line tool is a bit of a showstopper here, so I'm prepared to 
devote some time to this, but obviously I don't want to do that if the 
work's already happening or likely to happen soon.

So, quick plea for info: what's the status of this work? Is there a 
pre-existing design/plan for the missing bits of the REST interface? (I 
can't see this on the wiki). Is anyone currently doing this or soon to 
do it?

Thanks in advance,
