 > Is there a LJ export file we can import from?

 Sort of (that's what the old one used) - if you're OK with individually
 exporting per month, and then manually importing each file :-/

 > Does it have to use a HTTP API?

 Only known option that gives access to all posts + comments.

 > Does the API support iteration?

 Yes, which is what it uses, but with the comments in particular, you need
 to "collect them all up" so that you can re-thread them, because they come
 across the wire in "last edited" order, so they're not very structured
 (other than their LJ DB ids)
