WRT my own question contained in Q: re CB, but on a more speculative basis, I'd like to add that I -for one- would appreciate very much if there was a means to be notified when posts appear in some selected threads (other CMSes provide such functionality).

I've heard about rss feeds for PM, but this is an external service, and I'd rather prefer to have it as a builtin feature. Is there any project in this sense.

A somewhat related feature would be that of allowing one to ignore completely selected threads as well - but this must be thought of, and is by far less useful in the context of a web forum.

Maybe it's just that I've been used to the news and while USENET's interface is in itself much more raw than that of a web site, newsreaders plainly provide these facilities...
