Can we track our RSS?

How do we track RSS? We can track hits to our XML files with our logs and stats, but since the client views the feed in an aggregator and not a browser, can we we tell when that person leaves the site?

Many RSS feeds only sample the full article and that makes sense if you are trying to extend your site and bring people into your site. Many blog sites, of course, display there whole site in RSS and therefore the aggregator becomes a mini browser. Hey, we get to create our own little AOLs with our hand-picked content!
