The way I see it, there are 24 articles on the page (grouped into four
categories), each published independently at separate times. There
would be about a hundred if I kept that index up to date.

But I'm not sure this is a very compelling example, and I can't think
of any other cases where I'd possibly want to publish
non-database-backed data as both HTML and Atom.
