I created a script that works with the new facebook layout: https://gist.github.com/michaelv/11145168
Enjoy!
Some pieces of the code were copied from this gist.

Babrath, can this script be tailored to dump out the blocked list? I need to clean it out as it's over 9k, and we can't tell if a member is messing with the current membership by deleting them, or blocking them indiscriminately.
