Live feed socket?

Admin,

May we please have a live-feed socket? It'd be ever so useful for attaching automated gadgetry, or just watching in an oldskool terminal window!

Perhaps connectees would need to be site members. Maybe there could be commands to select text, comma, xml format etc, or even add stuff to the database.
Could use ssh instead of telnet for better security/control.

The server loading should be microscopic - particularly in comparison to scraping the website for the same data..

Like this; (I fakied this up in my text editor with some live data paste from the database as an example)

$ telnet live.wsprnet.org
Trying live.wsprnet.org...
Connected to live.wsprnet.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
