Question thread #48

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

How likely are y'all to need help with the database(s)? I don't know any Perl yet, but I'm in a database development program, and I'd like to help with the skills I do have, if I can.

http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/notes/Bot_Policy asks that clients rate-limit their requests.
Is there a suggested request rate, as a default to build into client software?

Apologies if this isn't the right place to ask; if not, where would be better?

Has there ever been any further effort toward moving the API toward something that could be usable for someone to develop iOS/Android/WindowsPhone apps? I understand that this is the major hangup in that area, but also that a lot of folks could benefit from a mobile solution.

Out of curiosity, is revising the notification system hard because it poses hard-to-solve problems or because it just needs a lot of tedious grinding, or both, or other?
