Questions about API Hourly Requests & Historical Info

1) Can I get weather data for multiple locations in one request? Seems like there were some plans to add this, has it been added yet?

2) Is Historical Data available in the API or do you email a file if historical data is requested?

3) Does the historical data fill in any gaps in 'missing' data that we see in the WU website?  Such as for weather station KHPN on October 30 2012, which has missing data for many hours in the morning.  Or is the historical data from the API the exact same as in the website?

I've been waiting for years (literally) for the opportunity to access multiple weather stations in one call.  Most of the stations that I want to hit are personal weather stations.  Data from the PWSs are pretty much free, volunteered data that WU then capitalizes off of.  Granted, WU has to maintain the computer infrastructure for storing and distributing the data, but I feel that they should be much more liberal with the data from PWSs
