I seem to remember having a discussion ages ago about uses for a realtime
feed from the database. This might be one of them...

We don't care (too much) if we miss some of the stream, but when it's
working we could send out notifications to those that are interested in
certain nodes. Also, since it's an XML stream we could use XSLT to quickly
match any changes that people are looking for.
