Thanks, buckcs, that helps a lot.
A suggestion to Kovid- Zune (yes... I have two, and they are tremendous!) software has an excellent paradigm for sync'ing podcasts, where you set the number of most recent episodes to keep on the device. When you sync, the new episodes are added, and those that exceed the limit are automatically removed. This would make a lot of sense for news sync, as a setting vs. a recipe tweak.
