in thread RSS feeds to most of perlmonks.org

In my ideal world, there would be such a link between the RSS feeds and PM that they'd always be within a few minutes of up-to-date, if not actually always up-to-date. And there'd be a link in the header of the html code which Firefox could use to find out about the RSS feed.

In my slightly less ideal world, we'd just get the link in the html code to this RSS feed (the one for the current node only - whatever that current node is, although some supernodes may not need it - such as the comment on node. This would still require a bit of work from the PM developers, although I would hope not much. Something like:

<link rel="alternate" title="PerlMonks RSS" href="http://prlmnks.org +/rss/$nodeid.xml" type="application/rss+xml" />
would need to be added to the header

In my real-as-in-now world, I'd like to express my appreciation of such a service! I just need to figure out how to get this somewhat automated :-)

    It occurs to me that this could done best with a nodelet. Then the RSS links could be presented for the node, the thread, the author and the section.

    The daemon should never be more than five minutes behind on getting new nodes, although it is very prone to being out of date wrt to the content and possibly the section.
