In the short term, gearscore is probably going to break other addons. 99% chance, in fact. I've had users report that gearscore blocks the inspect API, failing to properly relinquish it correctly until it finishes a round of profiling. After this change, that block could span multiple timeout attempts. I hope they change that architecture sooner than later, to relinquish control of the inspect API after each transaction like a good little addon.

In the long term, I wonder what changes are coming to the actual API calls. It would be fantastic to receive success/ignore codes after requesting inspect data, have functions to check the current status/timer on the inspect API, and generally have proper facilities in place to "play nice" with the blizzard servers.

This should be an interesting conversation to follow.
