Y.A.N.F: Private Message XML Ticker (Changes Applied)by demerphq (Chancellor)

Changes were applied today that were announced a while back in Y.A.N.F: Private Message XML Ticker.
Due to popular demand the plans were changed slightly so that hopefully the impact on unchanged clients will be lower. The behaviour is as follows:
This should allow people to set up clients fairly easily. First fetch with no arguments, then for new material use since_id=MAX_ID and for older stuff use prior_to=MIN_ID. Repeat until you get no records back (or less than max_recs) then the process is finished. Older clients shouldn't break as they will still get the most recent messages, but not all of them every time.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
