I've spent some time on that:

The difficulty is faking a form submission. All the saving/updating  
code is right in the _submit functions, so it is hard for modules to  
use CCK programmatically.

I've been debating factoring this out, but it is a large task. I  
haven't seen any love on my patch anyways, so I'm wondering if the  
effort is worth it, or if I should just wait for Jaza's generalized  
import/export API or FAPI 2.0 (which should make faking form  
submissions easier).

In penitence for my supporting the thread hijaking, I promise to  
review the original patch.
