Awesome, sounds like something I've been wanting for a while. I'll
check it out sometime soon.

WRT XML parsing, I'd be inclined to use a library if you were going
for generic, awful, weird XML (such as for an RSS reader.) There are
lots of weird corner cases. It's a pity RSS caught on, rather than
something easier to parse (like the output format of sfeed, by the
sound of it.) Still, RSS is less bad than HTML, so I use it a lot.
