Interrogating RDM from another program

I'm looking to create a plugin for Launchy so that it can start RDM sessions. What I'd like it to be able to do is for Launchy to know the sessions that are configured in RDM so that the user can type in a session name and have RDM launch it. I know that RDM has the ability to start a session on request from an external program, but I don't see a way for another program to find out what sessions are configured. Is there a way to do that?

Except if you parse the xml, I don't see a way for now. Do you have an idea how we could do that?

And parsing the XML isn't feasible when it's a remote data source.

To be honest, I'm not very familiar with Windows RPC. It could be something as simple as getting text back from STDOUT when running "RemoteDesktopManager.exe /listsessions" or something as complicated as Windows Communication Foundation.

What information do you need? Name, group and type is it enough? RDM could generate an index maybe?
