Cool - I had the same idea. You have been faster! ;-)

In general I'd advise to have a look who other apps are implemented:

We are happy to add whatever additional information you find out about app development 
to our development center. http://owncloud.org/dev/apps/getting-started/

I'd suggest you create a repo on github for this app and we can test it and comment.
As soon as the impressionist app is working properly we will happy to accept your pull request.

Take care,

Tom aka DeepDiver
