To do this well I think its a fair bit of work which - needs a fair
bit of testing too.
Particles was added before 2.46 release was planned.
Blender 2.5 will have a different way of accessing settings to the
current API - (the idea is to use the same constraints as the user
interface so no manual work is needed for simple data access)
So any API written now will probably only be available in 1 blender
release (unless 2.5 flops), so personally I have no interest in this
area. There weren't that many scripts that used particle api anyway
