You are correct, and your suggestion is implemented as identica-remote-user-timeline* (C-c C-o). I'd still like to objectify more of the identica-mode internals, but your feature is supported.

*In fact it has an emergent property in that you can then crawl to conversations that user has participated in, and from there to other user pages, and so on.

In order to support retrieving statuses from multiple services (and in the interests of general code cleanliness) I'm thinking of objectifying the globals used to hold server data and allowing a list of them, so this operation would just be creation of a new server with it's initial method set to user/<selected user>.

Also I'd like to make usernames first order objects in the displayed statuses so you can e.g. hit enter over a user's name to get their timeline.

It's not unusual for an identi.ca user to follow users on other statusnet instances. identica-mode handles this correctly in friends_timeline, group timelines, and tag searches (basically because the server just does the right thing and we don't have to do anything special). What we can't do is show a user timeline for a user on another instance.

To actually retrieve the timeline, we ought to just be able to let-bind statusnet-server and retrieve it as usual (but with no auth); the only bit I'm not sure about is whether identi.ca gives us their host information with their username.
