Hi Ivan

The idea of the GetProjectSettings is that the output is easily 
extendeable (because it is a non-standard method). So if there is some 
project information you think is usefull for your webclient, just add it 
to the code and I'm happy to apply pull requests in that respect.
It is not the idea of GetProjectSettings to serve all project 
information, rather to extend on-demand.
