Getting friends for an arbitrary user

Sorry if this is an obvious question -- I've read the protocol documentation, and it doesn't seem to be answered there. I want to write a program to generate a user's friends graph: e.g., a display that features nodes for each user that's connected to a given user by some degree of friendship, and edges between users who are friends. But there doesn't seem to be a way to get an arbitrary user's friends list using the "getfriends" mode -- you need to supply a username and password. Is there a way to do this without supplying a password?
