Does JForum have an API for creating a new user?

First - thanks for the app. It's really great.

The question doesn't differ much from the topic:
Does JForum have an API for creating a new user?

But that's not all my worries.
I know there is a way to handle external login authentication.
Is there a method to create a user, change his/her group, delete him/her, you know, take all the actions to join JForum to other app?
Is there a possibility to make JForum tell my app, when a user is deleted, banned, ... I will redirect creation of a user to my app, so creation isn't needed.

I don't know if I am clear, but I believe you know what I mean

Best regards. Chris.

Currently there isn't a well definied API for external tasks. Although you may hack the source to meet your needs, JForum officially lacks good suport for this so far.

SSO support is implemented in the CVS.. if you want to take a look, you must download the source from the "SSO" branch.

I'm doing some major refactorings, which will take a good time to get done right, but then all this stuff you asked for will be available.

I think, it can be done through web services.
So, other app can just use this web services API to add/modify/delete user or even post.

I sort of did this in a java app by using java.net to POST the right data into JForum to create a new user. This was handy since this approach also causes JForum to send the registration email.
