Hmm... well, this only runs for two seconds, once a week. But using  
Magpie or similar for this is definitely an interesting possibility.  
Except I'm not sure how I'd keep track of what's already been sent  
without record IDs coming from the database. Would probably be OK for  
weekly runs, but would be overkill to send full feeds for people  
using it for daily runs. But it's an interesting approach, thanks.

D'oh! I think I just found the problem - yep, a bit of output where I  
didn't know I had any. Working neatly now.  Thanks for the kick in  
the pants everyone.
