Its precisely because of RSS's Flexibility and Atom's existence that I'd written RssFwd in the most standards-ignorant approach. Had I went on to read the RSS spec, stuck to standards, and fret over why some people didn't do it the best-practiced way... I would've long pulled my hair out. Instead, if-this-exist-else-use-that-or-that-or-that dirty approach has worked well for me mentally and technically.

Btw, you can subscribe to my rants ;-)
