 The new wp.getCommentCount method provides the number of comments that
 have been approved, are awaiting moderation and have been marked as spam.

 An optional post_id can be provided that will limit the comment numbers to
 just that post.

 Example call to get comment count for entire blog:

 wp.getCommentCount(blog_id, username, password)

 Example call to get comment count for one post:

 wp.getCommentCount(blog_id, username, password, post_id)

 Example struct that is returned:

   "approved" = 1;
   "awaiting_moderation" = 7;
   "spam" = 369;

 I've contacted the author of the [http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/the-geek-
 blog/how-to-geek-software-wordpress-comment-moderation-notifier/ WordPress
 Comment Moderation Notifier] and he's fine with adjusting his app to match
 our API.
