That I should get my head out of my butt and check old mail.

I'll run this buy jpr who is porting the gnome-pilot standard abs
code back to pilot-link where it originally belonged.

The conduit can sort of already do this in that you can ask to
iterate across changed records. If the iterator function returns
non-null, there's modified records.

But a ->changed () call would make it easier to simply and quickly
determine if the local store has changed at all, and thereby speed
up the sync.
