News alerts which refer to the same url can appear in
multiple news feeds. For example there is significant
overlap in the alerts triggered by the BBC News UK site
and the BBC News Worldwide site.

It would be helpful to include a user selectable option to
prevent duplicates from causing multiple alerts. It would
also help if when one copy of a duplicate has been read
that all copies were marked as read regardless of which
newsfeed they are in.
