 I've done some thinking about ericlewis's original patch, and come to a
 couple conclusions.

 - I may be going a bit overboard, but it does seem that changing return
 value format of existing functions is going too far, just to do what we're
 doing here.
 - We should have a throttle, so that you don't get more than one update
 for a certain period of time (I chose 2 hours)
 - Field-by-field updates are not helpful, and the extra mechanisms needed
 for lumping them into a single update ("Boone updated Hometown, Display
 Name...") would add a lot of overhead for not much gain.
 - I think we'd annoy a lot of people with the "Eric updated their profile"

 4636.02.patch addresses these concerns. I went with "Eric's profile was
 updated", which is the best way I could think of in English to say it
 without resorting to user gender. Updates are throttled in two-hour

 Feedback welcome.
