I'm bought a Ledger Wallet and like the idea to have multiple accounts from the master node.
I'm also a long time Electrum user and would prefer to continue to work with this wallet.

From what I understand Electrum only uses the first/default account in the tree. (e.g. m/0/c/i)
Is there a way to retrieve keys of additional accounts? (e.g. /m/a/c/i)

Of course usable and grouped in the GUI would be best but it would also help if I could use them through the command line.

Only one account is supported. Initially they planned to support multiple accounts but dropped the idea because it was deemed too complicated for most users. After seeing the sort of questions that get asked on this forum I agree with them.

I think with time this will be an often used feature.

I could for example have my private and a club account using the same seed.
This would let me to give the club the xpub key for the club account so they could see the transactions without being able to see my private account.

Why not have it disabled by default and let people enable it if they want to use the added complexity?

+1 I would like to see this level of functionality also.
