Check for changes in ics?

I am using PHP:

I'd like to poll the ical file regulary but it seems a waste to download the whole file because in 99% nothing changed. Is there a way to poll the date when the last change occured without going through the trouble (and security issues) of logging into the account?
The "last-modified" field of the ics file is constantly updated (with your System time?)

The best way to do this is to use our API to fetch the user's account info which will have a timestamp for the last modification to their account. Polling the ICS file will not give you this information, and will be a huge waste of bandwidth.
