The problem with this is that you need to query every server on which  
you are subscribed to nodes. So then you try and work out what  
servers you have subscriptions on and...bang! you need a tracking  
method :)
It's trivial as long as you limit yourself to one server, although  
it's pretty wasteful even then.
