Yes, and traffic is a key factor here. With potentially hundreds of 
millions of clients hitting the servers, the biggest problem is not 
re-implementing the update service as a web service, but serving it 
efficiently. And indeed I agree that staticizing the results somehow 
would be good to do, since we have a relatively low number of possible 
answers with respect to the number of requests.
