[Owncloud] RSS reader with syncing

I'm still looking for a way of pushing articles from the agregator to the 

pubsubhubbub, suggested by Mario is based on web hooks, and thus does work 
only between HTTP server/web applications.

The Google Reader protocol is not open, there are only non-official API using 
HTTP requests.

I don't think we will be able to do that without a shell access to the server 
and running a daemon, and so that would remove the "works everywhere" 

Any idea, thought?

Yeah, but can WebDAV be used on any hoster? I know the webdav server-side is 
currently written PHP, but can all the protocol features be implemented like 
that? (After some research it seems it's impossible, but I could be 
mistaken... :)
