Disconcerting? I've indicated in my message (and many times before) that
1) an API exists, 2) we're working on releasing documentation for it,
and 3) you can work with it now if you're willing to hack around a bit.
A public API takes time, and we have a lot on our plates.
But the API is what I'm working on currently, and we'll be releasing
documentation very soon.

Given that I've provided a link to someone who was working with data
from the API months ago, and that there are also countless ways to get
data out via the desktop client, saying that the data is "silo'd" to
Zotero is a bit ridiculous. We've also noted before that the entire
zotero.org website is generated using the web API, so that gives some
indication of the kinds of things that will be possible.
