Place Holder for Lab Caches

Can we get a placeholder for Lab Caches until GS desides what they want to do with a API? So the PGC stats and the GC are the same.

We will make some sort of workaround, but it's a huge task. It is on this years roadmap, but it's unlikely that we will make that schedule. So to be realistic, I wouldn't hope for it to appear until the beginning of the next year.

Seems like a hot topic again (Leap Day, Megaevents, Lab caches) and I found also some so is there any progress?
Great stuff, but it's 2016 now. Hope it's still on the roadmap, and closing in? ;-)
It is definitely not forgotten, that's all I can say right now. Keep your expectations high and hope for sooner than later and you might find yourself lucky.
(cryptic answer, I know)
I would like to add something and though my comment might be out of the normal it is my situation.  I had one day on my streak this year that all I found was a Lab Cache.  Geocaching counted that cache and that day as a continuing of my streak.  MyGeocachingProfile has a way of reflecting my Lab Cache finds that keeps the rest of my finds in the proper order and my streak intact.  Yet as a paying member of Project-GC my streak is shorter.  My find count is lower.  This needs to be fixed for multiple reasons.
Oh just checking in.
