XML-RPC - Questions on usejournal data

I am in the process of adding LJ support for our blog posting editor using the LJ XML-RPC protocol.

The login API command returns a list of journals ('usejournal') a user belongs to. Is there a way via the XML-RPC protocol to access more information on each of the usejournals, specifically, the URL and the FullName.

For example, using my login credentials, one of the usejournals will be this community (lj_clients). What I would like to access is the URL (e.g. and the FullName (e.g. LiveJournal Client Discussions).

(the blogger xmlrpc API getUserBlogs returns this info - but I was
hoping there was away to get this information via LJ xml-rpc protocol.)

Another question I have is (again using xmlrpc), is there way to for the getevents API call (for a usejournal e.g. lj_clients) to return only the event items posted by the authenticated user? (i.e. 'poster' = username) (and filter out other events posted by other community members).

(again, blogger api's getRecentPosts seems to return only the items posted by the authenticated user).
