Can I get a list of all active IPNS nodes?

I want to bootstrap a distributed web application, but first I need to be able to get a manifest of all participating nodes by checking for a particular files in an IPNS dir.

  • Can I get a list of IPNS nodes, and have my spider check them for a particular file, or do I need to provide a “bootstrap” web service?
  • Can I tell if an IPNS ‘folder’ has changed, similar to If-Modified-Since in http?

ipfs diag net was disabled in releases 0.4.10-dev and above as it was putting not insignificant strain on the network.
