At least IMO, true operational requirements for any such system would be
quite user-specific. The (full) set of user requirements would tend to

    Scheduling capabilities.
    Varying frequencies, perhaps even within the same URL.
    Inclusion and/or Exclusion of specified nodes, within a url.
    Statistical-recording capabilities.
    Varying underlying-database formats.

If this were implemented AT ALL, I'd see it in the form of an independent
sub-system; output taking the form of .conf files, which would then be
thru a htdig/htmerge script. The format of the underlying database would be
"up to the user"; perhaps accessed thru something similar to Perl/DBI.

take care of
