Publicly-Available Game Data?

Is there any way to get (read-only) access to game data these days, whether it's through some API, or directly to MF's database(s), or whatever?  I've kinda always wanted to freely query it for various random purposes, e.g. to answer such questions as

- What are the cards that have the highest (winning player gains them) / (losing player does not gain them) ratio? (Followers and Trusty Steed are probably pretty high.)
- How would people be ranked in other ranking algorithms?
- How often do engines win against non-engines?
- How are peoples' ranks changing over time?  Who are the players on the fastest increase in rank?
- How advantageous (or not) is opening 5/2 over 4/3?
- etc.

I'm sure there are a gazillion other cool conclusions to be drawn from that data.  It would be fun to have access to it.

Well, you can scrape the game logs site yourself, and then process the logs. I did this for all of my games (by using salvager to get links to all my games) to look at some of my gain stats.
