BackyardEOS and lost stars in PHD2

Question

Reposted from BackyardEOS forum: Is there any way BackyardEOS could be programmed to redirect PHD2 to autoselect a guide star in the event that that the first guide star is lost either due to a passing cloud or somehow the star was jolted outside the tracking square? In principle it would be similar to SGP's recovery process. It would mean I'd be more comfortable leaving my rig unattended for a while knowing that it will at least try to recover if the guiding stops for said reasons. Just a thought!

PHD2 has a substantial API which affords access to and control of most Guiding Actions and Status / Results.

It also has an older API inherited from PHD which allows a few basic interactions such as requesting a Dither.  BYE/BYN uses this latter / simpler API for primarily that Dither request.
