It would be good to be able to get retweets in a user's timeline.  If
that is not possible for backwards compatibility reasons, is it
possible to have a function such as retweets_by_user which has similar
semantics to retweets_by_me, except we can specify the user whose
retweets are being retrieved (requiring appropriate authentication for
protected users, of course)?
