Yes, there's a seemingly very full-featured API, that's documented here:

http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vc-sdk/visdk25pubs/ReferenceGuide/index.html

They have samples for perl, java, and C#.  Now that I'm looking at it,
the wsdl files gave me namespace problems that I couldn't figure out.
I'm not exactly an expert in web services though.  I'd attach copies
of them, but I'm not sure if that's appropriate for the list.   It
seems a shame that they don't have examples and some other support for
using python. The CIM API they have does have some python examples,
but that's a different thing all together.
