Bloglines offline synchronisation?

Now that I’m on the road a lot, I’m slowly coming to grips with my mobile toolset.

My email gets forwarded to Gmail, bookmarks are on del.icio.us, photos go to flickr, blogs are on bloglines.

There is one caveat (amongst many others) with bloglines, though: I don’t always have net connectivity while with a customer, nor the time to read all my feeds. Of course I can download my subscriptions into an RSS feed reader, but then I’ll have to see them all again in bloglines the next time I’m reading there.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to do a (semi-) automatic sync of what you have read between an offline reader and bloglines?

UPDATE: Jens-Christian Fischer points me to NetNewsWire. Their product information leads me to the Bloglines API.

I’m now looking at their list of Windows aggregators using this API – unfortunately the only reader that seems to support the API is FeedDemon. Aren’t there any others?

UPDATE 2: jkOnTheRun writes about GreatNews, which also has Bloglines support. Downloaded, will try and report back.
