bloglines-style client for reading LJ

I want to be able to read locked posts in bloglines, and I want bloglines to support cut tags. Neither of these things are ever going to happen, so I'm thinking what I really need is a client for reading LJ that formats my friends list like bloglines does.

I don't believe such a thing exists. In fact, I don't see any clients for reading LJ, only for posting -- am I wrong?

I'm considering writing a Firefox plugin. You'd choose "open friends list" from a menu item, and it would open a new tab/window and display your friends list formatted in frames like bloglines does. Items would be able to be "kept new" (which I believe means I wouldn't be able to use greasemonkey, because I'd have to go make requests directly to LJ, not just reformat the existing presentation of the friendlist).

Am I off track at all? Any suggestions?

Thanks all!
