API v2 ticket creation

When creating a ticket, it looks like the 'description' field is added as the body of the first comment to the ticket.

If I view the ticket on the Zendesk site, that comment is listed with the requester of the ticket as its author, as set when creating the ticket. However, when I pull the ticket's audits from the API, there's no 'author_id' field on the comment event, only on the audit as a whole. The user I authenticated as for the API is rightfully credited as the audit author for creation, but that leaves me unable to tell who wrote the comment!

Thanks for releasing this new API. I love the improved paging.
