Exporting Friends / Shared Journal comments and journals.

Hello, I'm working on developing a client catering to people who possess multiple journals. (For example, people that use the LJ system for role playing, and who thus have Journals for their various characters.) One of the requirements, (if this client is to be of any use at all,) is that it will allow people to seemlessly view the journals of all of their friends, subdivided by which account the journal is friended to. Anouther is that it must support collapsable comment trees.

First of all, is it possible to fetch entries from the journal of some one other than yourself via the getevents mode? Or is there some other mode that would be more appropriate. Getevents appears to only allow you to fetch your own journal. (currently it looks like my wisest choice is to simply use the /data/atom format)

Secondly, having fetched the journal entries of the friends, and the journal entries of any shared journals, is there a mechanism for exporting the comments of those friends journals? Currently the data/rss and data/atom formats don't even appear to inform you if comments are present on a given entry. And the comment export guidelines clearly state that you can only export your own comments.
