export_comments.bml has a model for caching comments that could be improved by supporting a lastsync parameter like getevents does.

right now, to answer the question "has a comment been deleted since i last checked?", you have to call export_comments.bml?get=comment_meta from 0 to maxid. a user with a journal nearing 100,000 comments (of which i'm sure there are a few) will have to download 100,000 (meta) comments every time he syncs, even if nothing has changed.

xb95, i don't have any means to test it, but i'd be happy to submit a patch if that would help.
