getentries by tag

I asked this questions a while back on lj-clients and received no response, and since haven't had much time to look into it. But I got bugged about it again tonight, and have still not found an answer.

Ultimately what I'm looking for is a way to use getevent (either via flat or xml-rpc protocols) to get a listing of postings that are filtered by tag. I know you can do this via the standard LJ UI and through the RSS feeds by simply appending &tag=tagname to the end of the url. For the life of me I can't find any mention of a way to do this via the protocols.

Does this capability not exist at all? Is it hiding in plain sight and I'm being more dense then usual?

At this point I'd settle for a definitive "No, you can't do this" so I'd stop looking for an answer, if that really is the answer. But it seems just silly that this sort of functionality isn't exposed in the protocols.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks to all for your time!
