Comment (by koke):

 Added a new patch (sorry about the wrong one). Tested with an Author user:

 * wp.getComments shows every comment (as dashboard does)
 * Added a new field 'can_edit' to show if the user has permission to
 edit/delete that specific comment. That'll allow to customize the UI for
 * Can edit/delete comments in own posts
 * Can't edit/delete comments in others posts

 I think this also solves #19916. Some questions about it:

 * Should wp.deleteComment error be "You are not allowed to delete..."
 instead of moderate?
 * I was going to change the error in wp.getComments to match
 wp.getComment, but it's a different error code (401 and 403) and could
 break something
