weblog software pinging idea

it would be nice if weblog software did not start pinging services like blo.gs until the third entry or so. that would eliminate most of the requests i get to remove entries that just appeared because someone was testing new blogging software at a temporary location, or testing the install of new blogging software before switching their main site over to it. the same thing goes for blogs appearing in blogger’s list of changed sites.

and i am endlessly amused by the variations of with-and-without index.php or index.html, or 'http://example.com/blog' vs. 'http://example.com/blog/'. i need to finish up the handling of redirects found when checking if the site was updated, and probably add code to handle the presence or absence of index.php (or index.html) like it handles the 'www.' prefix.
