Where's all the good Video Editor scripting?

I’m looking at using the video editor a bit more creatively than I have in the past, and the notion of a few small scripts came up. But I can’t for the life of me find good documentation, much less good video guides on using Python for controlling the editor. Some sem to indicate it’s a ‘hole’ in the API, that there simply is not much there! What gives? Does anyone know some good places to start?
