Remote access issues

Hey guys, I'm working on remote controlling the roku using the external control REST API, and have run into an issue.

I've run through all of the examples on ... trol+Guide and integrated them. Easy peasy. Next up I was hoping to solidify my client by providing feedback.

The ability to query for things like:

- currently running app
- current launchpad menu
- remote orientation/magnometer/etc..

would be extremely useful. Other things, like reporting/changing/muting the volume over HDMI would also be welcome.

So far the experience has been really straight forward and implementing a client to the REST API has been a cake walk. However, it seems like only half of the potential API is available. Is there anyone who can comment on this? Are there undocumented resources that people have found?
