be able to get approved invoices in PDF format via the API
Be able to query Xero with an invoice number and get a PDF returned of the approved invoice
You can now retrieve any invoices and credit notes in PDF format (all statuses) – see http://blog.xero.com/developer/api-overview/http-get/

This is 1of 2 key functions I am chasing in an API for an accounting system.
The first one is to automatically create invoices based on metered usage in a SaaS application. The second is to pull down the created invoice as a PDF to attach to an email. I know the xero can send a PDF invoice via Email, however I wish to send a custom email including account and usage statistics with the invoice attached to show the value the customer received for the month.
This would also allow us to build automated payment reminder systems and such.

This is a feature I would love - or even just the ability to request a temporary link to an invoice, etc when a download is desired by a user or staff member.

This would be very nice indeed! I would love to store the PDF invoice on my server so my customer can access the PDF invoice from their order history. Of course this is a nice to have and not a prioroty.

Bonus points for making this work transparently with HTTP Content Negotiation or similar
