Find out what the API of the target gives back, write an importer to 
handle that, and then run a regular cron-job to get the latest records 
from the target, and import them using your new importer

(that's basically what we do with the Router.... except we get the data 
fed to us via SWORD or FTP - we have written importers that translate 
the metadata sent to us into the fields we use in our EPrints)
