What we did eventually here at work is that we use the Javascript
facebook library - it is maintained by FB and high profile - and so
should be updated with each new API change.   For our app we import
the data via a confirmation page - so the javascript builds that
confirmation form and later at the server side we deal with a standard
form POST.
