need a working read/write API for reading and creating TODOs in org mode.

this is the approach that I have implemented for BBDB sync. I considered
PyOrgMode (https://github.com/bjonnh/PyOrgMode/network), but it appears unable
to process TODOs, or even recurring events. To be able to extend PyOrgMode so I
can read and write TODOs, I needed a full description of the format of TODO
entries in all its forms. The Org manual itself has this information, I'm sure
but scattered all over the place, given its real audience. Can someone point me
to some sort of a concise representation, if any, of the org file format 

I'm the maintener and creator of PyOrgMode, some contributors (that I can't
thanks enough there), added many TODO related enhancements to it. If you want to
give it a try, we may be able to work together in getting your needs included in
