  • Would Etag and Last Modified not prove useful? If a requesting client specified one or the other then you get the entries since the last time. If there are only a few then provide the full content, otherwise provide the headlines.

    Obviously if the client end doesn't provide that information then continue with the current setup.

    Regardless of all of this, congratulations. It's a wonderful resource in it's current state.
