[development] subscribe to a node

Maybe I'm missing something here, but if what you want is an RSS feed of nodes 
that you have flagged as "watched" when they change, it sounds like a trivial 
node that uses Views.  I.e., have the module allow a user to flag a node 
as "watched", then create an RSS feed with Views that shows all nodes with a 
watched flag, with an argument for the user, ordered by modified time.  It's 
just a tracker-like feed.

Or am I missing something in the needed functionality?

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
