I was under the impression that the new method of getting updates was 
much leaner than the old changes.xml method, which downloaded a 
multi-megabyte file for parsing.  It looks like the code now just 
specifically asks Ping-O-Matic if the site's links have updated.

Also, when looking at update-links.php I couldn't help but notice that 
Snoopy is being included, but doesn't appear to be used (i.e. it is all 
done manually instead of using the Snoopy class).

The only thing I could think of is that some error in the query to 
Ping-O-Matic is causing PoM to return some huge file... either that or 
this guy has 5,000 blogs on his blogroll!
