comment iPhone Google Reader client with updating home-screen badge for unread item count?
I would also add that this update doesn't need to happen constantly. Once per day would actually be enough for me.

I understand what you're saying, but a) The payload is negligible b) I, as a user, would be willing to pay for this service c) I don't mind my Google auth token being stored on a developer's server (provided they're an established operation)

Why would we require the RSS app to run in the background? Surely an app server could poll the Google API and send the unread count as a push notification to the user's iPhone?
