The version in KDE 3.5 already includes initial support for "generic feeds".
You can augment a providers file with arguments like "downloadurl-latest",
From there it is only a small step to have generic "downloadurl:something"
URLs, each with an individual number of entries, and each feed does by itself
describe the name that should appear on the tab. Then, an application might
have an "All Entries" tab. Note that for kde-look.org this will probably
break the internet due to the number of entries :-)
With KNewStuff2, the results are generated on the server. Think about having
the web browsers' find-as-you-type, or even KMail's filter-as-you-type.
However this will only be available for services which run the web service.
As a fallback, or alternative scheme, the above will still be available, but
be less dynamic by design.

Fair enough :)
I hope that I can get serious spec & knewstuff work done by the next weekend.
