pear currently checks the status using the Last-Modified: header. It
would be quite nice if another mechanism could be added.

The logical thing that comes to mind is a Content-MD5 header, but it
might be a bit difficult for pear-servers such as Pirum (which is based
on static files).

So perhaps the easiest thing is to just download the channel file if the
last-modified header changed, and do an md5 locally to see if it's
indeed the same as it was.

This, because many of the pear channels i use report they need an
update-channel whenever a new version of a package is added.
