RSS for papers

The time has come to have RSS feeds for subjects at a much finer granularity than what arxiv.org provides. Suppose I want to track papers on art gallery problems. Today it is not hard to imagine a spider that crawls well known sites like SoCG conf pages/SODA web pages etc, finds paper titles, and determines what papers might be of relevance to an art gallery problem search. One could use Feedster right now for such a search, but searching over the entire web will generate a lot of junk (or nothing at all)

Seems like it would not be hard given current web technology....
