Regarding excessive noise caused by a deluge of replies on a given

Didn't think about that one, but definitively worth a look.

Another way to do this is to use a pubsub service (e.g.
activities.server.com) where every entry is a node and all related events
are items (e.g. comments, like, retweets, etc etc...). The client need to
actively subscribe to these to receive the updates.

The original item only keeps track of a reference counter (using atom thr
extensions). So you could get 'light pings' from the item and fat pings from
the item pubsub node.

Not sure yet of what is best. We'll try a few things, experiment and
iterate. All ideas welcome !
