Complete itemid list

I'm not working on a full client, just some python scripts for archiving that interact with the web interface. However, I think this is a good place for my question:

Is there a way for a user to get a list of itemids for all their entries? I can parse them out of the monthly archives or the "recent entries" page, but that can be a pain to assemble for large and long-lived journals. It would be nice if I could get them with an http request.

If there is a another community or a documentation site where such questions would be more appropriate, please let me know.

Few Protocol Requests

I had some suggestions for Protocol used by the clients. I post it here, because it's a client related issue. If I'm posting to the wrong community, smack my wrist and send me in the right direction.

There are basically three modes I wanted to suggest on.
The first two are "getevents" and "getdaycounts".
Basically I just would like to see the "usejournal" option a bit differently. I think if you could just add multiple journals to one request it would be great. When people have 15 shared journals, the 15 different "getdaycounts" requests add up.

Also the "checkfriends" mode, I would like to see a value returned saying who updated their journal.

Well I know I know nothing about programming livejournal so I'm not even sure how feasible these things are. Also, I don't want to have people thing that I'm whining. I'm very happy with livejournal, these are just some requests.
