SPUG: Amazon wishlists

I see that some people were nice enough to write modules to simplify 
queries of Amazon wishlists.

What I haven't found is whether there is an API method that would allow me 
to update my own wishlist, using just the ASINs and my wishlist's token.

Why would I program this?  For one, I found someone's list of things they 
want on their non-AMZN page.  I'd rather create a form that scrapes their 
page, lists each one with a check box, and then updates my wishlist with 
my selections.

For another, the person's list is for items from amazon.co.uk, while my 
list is on amazon.com.  ASINs appear to be identical between sites.

I don't see a link on Amazon's site to APIs, but perhaps I'm not looking 
in the right spot.
