comment Duplication of view access control logic in database queries and application component
Good thinking. I like your use of decorators to intercept and check access. I agree that the query part is the most difficult. Part of the problem in the question I posted is that we want to use efficient DB level paging, which meant we didn't want to defer the access control check to the application layer.

comment Automated tests for differencing algorithm
Good insight that there are two constraints here. I need complete inclusion of new content (which is a simple yes/no determination) and minimal extra noise (for which I need the threshold). Thanks.

comment Automated tests for differencing algorithm
If I were verifying for strict accuracy, yes. But due to the heuristic nature of the algorithm and volatility of the data, we don't want that. We want to set an acceptable threshold that will verify complete inclusion of new content and minimal extra noise.
