Is there any simple way to deal with characters changing names using the API? it doesn't seem like there is a UUID for characters

This is how I was comparing 2 characters (local/api) to check if they are the same: https://github.com/chillerlan/gw2hero.es/blob/master/app/Updater/Accounts/AccountUpdater.php#L96-L101

basically Anet Justin needs to pull his finger out and switch on SMW in the API namespace... or we could query the API for endpoints :P

I know it was talked about but i can't remember the results of the discussion. What was the status on an API endpoint for gem store items? Not possible, possible but hell, maybe?

@lye's last comment about the gemstore:

I actually have an endpoint for that, but it doesn't show packages

and this github issue: #391

hell, I'd be fine with an endpoint that has all but those, with those to be added eventually... but I guess that might not be acceptable
