Actually, zap2it has been in contact with Isaac about this kind of
thing, too... he sent us a link on the devel list for labs.zap2it.com,
which offers an xml feed for registered users.
Personally, I'd also be fine with setting up a tivo-like thing that
tracks viewing habits (but not users - and since the code is open, we
could better assure people that this is really the case), and trading
that information with a listings provider in exchange for the listings
themselves. Honestly, it'd just be interesting to look at what people
record, etc, but I'm just a nut for statistics.
