Gmail as Atom Feed?

While some folks are reporting that a new feature has appeared in their Gmail accounts — the option of being notified of new Gmail via an Atom feed — I haven’t received that option yet. I’m guessing that a staged launch is underway, one having to do with Google’s understandable concern that a wide feature launch would turn into a species of denial of service attack.
