"checkfriends" protocol

Is there an easy way to detect which friends group(s) have been updated when you're told that there are new entries, short of doing a round-robin poll of each possible "mask" value in turn?

(If not, I'd like to suggest adding one - even though it may require more work from the servers to answer the checkfriends request, it's still probably healthier than rendering the friends page n times as the user flicks through to see which group has been updated [OK, I'm assuming they're using a default view at this point, but I think that's a reasonable one.].)
