It would probably easier to simply extract those information from the
xml demo data. Running the demo isn't required. ;-)

Well, we'd only need someone to code all that. I've never coded anything
in PHP so far.

This would require an automated demo running mode where you start Pingus
with a certain switch, telling it to play through the demo and indicate
level solve status as return code. Add in an option to disable any
actual drawing to gain speed (drawing is only need when you want to see
where a demo fails). Do you volunteer to write the code? :-)
