You're probably right... not because of flooding, though, but because
of RSS limits: if the RSS feeds shows 20 packages and somebody orphans
30, 10 will invariably be "lost", and it defeats the purpose. Anyway,
if someone follows an RSS feed, s/he should be prepared to see a lot
of entries. After all, it can't be bigger than the new package feed we
already have. If it is, we have a problem, and it's not the one we
thought it was =)
Or is it possible to give an RSS a "time limit", which shows entries
for the last X days regardless from the number?

Anyway, I'm still for both, strongly for the first one, a little less
on the second one, but I still think it's valid.
