	It was done against the trunk one month ago. Anyway, last week I merged
the last changes and it seems it was ok.

	Anyway, the patch needs more work (more relevant information in the
feed, proper links, etc). I think I'll take a look again on it these

	The reason is simple: I don't know how O:). Seriously, I'm a beginner
in Twisted, but I will try to learn as fast as I can if you point me a
good document on Twisted serialization.

	My RSS feed patch is based in refactoring an XML superclass with no
information at all. It would be very interesting to derive the rss
features from your XML output patch.
