I don't see any advantage to using c.  I think perl is just as or more
capable then c in calling curl and manipulating the output.  One part
that is not very fun is to do error checking.  You have to munge through
the html returned to see if an operation was successful or not and
extract the error message.

If you have control over the server end it sounds like the XMLRPC API
mentioned by dberlin would be a better way to go.
