Changed API

RapidShare has changed their APIs again Doh. This forces me to update my own script which i usually use to see my account from my local desktop. They have done so in the past and they have done it again this time.

It's kinda frustrating, since people who depends on their APIs will have to check on their documentation daily just to make sure that their code is still working due to unchanged APIs. IMHO, API should be stable and less prone to changes. With a stable APIs, then people will get more benefit of it because they are quite stable and supported for quite a long time. This way, they can work on more ideas on how to provide better service to the clients instead of working with API changes every day.
