However, accessing it via Python CLI gets you just about anything you want in the blockchain.

That should be enough for my experiments.

On that note, I would argue I didn't exactly reinvent the wheel.... the Satoshi client is a wheel that spins at 1000 RPM permanently attached to a satoshi axle.  My code is a wheel that spins at 10,000 RPM and can be used with any axle.  I'm not sure it's possible to do (single-threaded) blockchain scanning any faster (after all, I am an expert on C++ data structures).

I did not mean to imply that your modular blockchain wasn't an improvement over Satoshi's client. I was just curious whether you and Genjix collaborated or shared any code. I believe you are both doing some similar things. Each implementation might test the other, or if either approach for a particular component is superior, why not steal like artists?

Genjix' libbitcoin license is also Affero GPL, while FellowTraveler is suggesting a new hybrid Lesser-AGPL, which might be more appropriate.

I like Electrum's approach still there is no real difference between a remote server and a local daemon.  The issue is still duplication of work.  If some fix needs to be made to the daemon then electrum needs to make the same change also. 

On the other hand, we'd like to encourage to have a multitude of implementations making up the network in order for it to be more robust. Some vulnerability in satoshi node might not affect the other implementations und such protect the blockchain somewhat or make an attack on it much less effective.

Hi!
Does this patch also exist for the current 0.7.1 version?

Introduces four new RPC calls:
* dumpprivkey: retrieve the private key corresponding to an address
* importprivkey: add a private key to your wallet
* dumpwallet: export the contents of your wallet in various ways
* importwallet: import/merge a dumped wallet into your own

dumpprivkey and importprivkey long been upstream, and in released software.

dumpwallet and importwallet are not yet merged.
