As cool as the 3rd person tools are, I can't see the action being very constructive, especially if the OP says the idea of the tools is to support Frontier, as well as the game.
Why not just stay in touch with Howard??
The OP mentions going through Zac but, if it's possible to organise a coordinated shutdown, and if people worried he doesn't appear on forums, did anyone actually PM Howard first?? Surely he'd know why the API doesn't beta, though if you ask me it's probably written during beta, once the build has been locked down, because at the end of the day it is a peripheral to the main game build.
So anyway, no doubt the thread has a life of it's own by now, but my 2c.
ps. sympathetic because obviously the 3rd parties want to give a good service but don't support the action really.
