Well, which one is most likely to be correct? If the RSS feed needs to
be updated manually after the new release is added to the FTP site,
maybe it would make more sense to add the RSS to the list of "pages"
to verify for up-to-dateness. The primary source of information should
be correct by default (which is why I'm looking at FTP directory
names--assuming the release exists iff you can download the source
code).

But I'm assuming the RSS is not generated automatically and the
content at http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/source/ is. I could very well
have the wrong idea about how everything fits together.

Either way, I like your idea of optimizing the checker not to check
all the other pages unless the primary source's version number
changes. Remembering the previous maximum version number would also
allow warnings such as "maximum version is now 8.3.2; last time I
checked it was 8.3.3."
