After quick glance at the Photon code it doesn't look like it is using 
any kind of API.  It knows about a couple of blog systems -- MT, 
TypePad, Photopia, Wordpress, and Blojsom -- and hand crafts a URL 
specific to that system to create a category.  It has a hardcoded method 
when dealing with MT to login and then create a URL of the form:

__mode=save_cat&blog_id=XX&category-new=XX&category-new-parent-0=XX

If my understanding is correct, Photon won't ever work with Typo unless 
Photon is changed.  (Or, I guess, Typo is changed to accept the above 
strange URL and do something useful with it.)
