I was hoping on adding some ajax code to my web app to allow auto-
completing of @usernames as you start typing
I suspect I'll need to cache the names on my server, but was wondering
if there was a quick API call to get just the usernames of the people
you follow.

statuses/friends gets me the username, but I also end up with more
data than I need (bandwidth), and have to navigate in blocks of 100s
friends/ids looks perfect, limited info, brings back 5000 in one go,
however I only get the ids.

Is there a (hidden) option to get usernames instead of ids with
friends/ ?

Else if I have a user who is following 3000 people I will need to
cursor through the api 30 times, just to build a cache file, by the
time that is complete I'm sure the user will have completed the name.
