Hi Jan,

I maintain RT::Client::REST library[1] which I wrote about a year ago. 
It is based on the rt command-line tool but provides OO classes for easy 
integration into other tools.  If you (or someone) starts to 
improve/change/enlarge the server side code, please keep me in the loop 
so that I can keep the library updated.

Thank you,

   - Dmitri.
