2 things about the OEIS Welcome Page

A script that does a wget (of the internal format as text),
and diffs with the last version would also do the job.
E.g. see
Only the first few and the last line would have to be discarded.
Like this:

wget URL | grep -A999 '^%I' | grep -B999 '^%A' > bla
diff bla bla-old && some-alert-func

People "subscribing" this way will create a load by
page polling.  However, when a poll is done reasonably rare
(e.g. once a day) there should be no problem.
