(Sorry, have only skim-read the discussion, so this point might have 
already been made.)

How about a /blah/blah/<list>/<nonce>/<segment> scheme? The <list> would 
be a magic marker that amounts to "ls /blah/blah", the <nonce> makes 
sure that I will be able to iterate a specific (fresh) version of this 
list as it exists at this very moment directly from the publisher, and 
<segment> is there in case the list is too large. (There might be a 
selector between <list> and <nounce> for stuff like limit queries, e.g. 
to get all records from "sa..." to "sb..." from a database - thinking 
about the LevelDB model here.)
