Google has just announced an update to its GWT API.

This API allows you to:

list, add, or remove sites from your account (you can currently have up to 500 sites in your account)
list, add, or remove sitemaps for your websites
get warning, error, and indexed counts for individual sitemaps
get a time-series of all kinds of crawl errors for your site
list crawl error samples for specific types of errors
mark individual crawl errors as "fixed" (this doesn't change how they're processed, but can help simplify the UI for you)

They really need to stop listing HTTP 410 errors in Webmaster Tools. It's good to see they're working on Webmaster Tools though the ability to update if an error has been resolved or not needs to be reduced down to an on-demand crawl check of some sort.
