Dedupe feeds with overlap (like NYTimes)

I have several feeds that share stories between them. For instance, NYTimes Business and Home Page feed can often have the same story in both feeds. As you can guess, that is annoying. I would love to have an optional de-duplication (dedupe) feature that removes duplicates. The hard question is which one gets eliminated? Maybe a simple rule, like keep the first one, would work. I don't have any better ideas than that.

You know I keep a NYTimes folder just for testing this out. I would love to group dupes, it wouldn't be that terribly difficult. I just need to prioritize this work.

Any updates on prioritizing this feature? I have seen some other questions for similar types of functionality dating back quite a while (although some are more complex in their de-dupe request).
