I'm willing to put it on my todo list, if you'll read the Google API and figure out how to mark downloaded posts as read. Ideally, some pseudocode would be great. This recipe is tough for me to work on as I don't use GR. I looked at the recipe results that are supposed to be "working" with the new code, and to be honest, I couldn't even tell if they were what you were supposed to get.
I should warn that my todo list has a few things on it and I'm really slow. I only tackled this because it looked easy (Ha!), and I was one of the few people who'd already written a recipe that changed headers. (I'm still trying to figure out why my first header control method failed. I went back and tested my earlier recipe with both header control methods, and both worked. I don't yet know why only the second one worked for Google Reader.)
