    It would be amazing to offer support for incoming and outgoing webhooks in addition to the current API. What could this be used for?

    * Creating leads
    * Triggering a service or action when a lead is created
    * Clearing wrapper cache
    * Lots of other possibilities

    The first three examples are already available via API. Is there a specific further functionality that would require a webhook?

    Yes, I understand that many of the common uses for webhooks can be done with the API, however many services offer webhooks for integration. Offering webhooks would open up many more possibilities for integrations with other services. It can also speed up development time for partners when creating various apps and integrations.
