Access by computers instead of people?

Have you considered to have a version of the data returned in a form more easily parsed by software? You could leave out all the HTML tags and return pure text similar to how METARS are done at:
[tgftp.nws.noaa.gov]

Also, it'd be useful in that case to have the airport and all the runway data returned on a single access similar to how airnav.com does it, but they have only US airport data.

Thanks!

Oh, also it'd be neat if there's no TAF for a particular airport, it'd be really neat to know the closest airport that has a TAF.
