Does Trac support a REST API?

I would like to find a better way to do this without reaching into the Trac
database. There was a GSoC project a couple of years ago that developed some
python to parse the data using one of the export formats Trac provides. The
final part of that project is to take the python dict data and to generate ReST
format output however that task sits in the queue of things to do. The
motivation behind this was access to all the ticket data such as a comments. I
think a Trac query page was still needed.
