Ok. Right now pinging is basically just 'add rpc.pingomatic.com' to your
update services. The only problem to solve here is a speed issue, in
some cases. To solve this, the above solution is that we're gonna gonna
add a dialog box, a popup box (basically another dialog--one that just
closes itself randomly!), and a preference and a reference to cronjobs?
Stick the pinging in an iframe; be done with it :)
