If a plugin is uploaded as new when it should have been an update it will be deleted. I'm sorry but that will make the website un-usable. Also allowing people to insert an id and then the possibility of them never coming back to update just creates a mess that needs to be cleaned up often.
I dont think using the ID numbers of our files is a good idea. You need a proper API where you can bounce the name of the plugin dependency off of and get the update. Heck you're not even using the favorites API correctly as your using it to create a list of all plugins where I thought this project was just going to update peoples plugins that are marked as favorites on the site. I need to think about this as we have normally reserved this for our Minion app since it has an ad so we can continue to pay the bills.
I think I'll open up the entire API to the public here and see what happens. I'll do my best to get this done in the next couple weeks.
