ljdump and comment editing

Today LJ announced that users can now edit comments. I wonder whether this affects ljdump in any way, since I'm sure I made assumptions that the contents of comments would not change. Or, if it's implemented by deleting the original comment and adding a new one, then ljdump would continue to work properly. This bears investigation.

Update: It looks like they broke it. After editing a comment and running ljdump again, the edited comment is not retrieved. Even after adding a new comment to the entry, the previously edited comment is still not retrieved. Getting the comments out of LJ through the published APIs was enough trouble in the first place, we'll see whether this is even fixable.
