Smart feed fetching

Chuq Von Rospach has an excellent suggestion for aggregator developers here. A couple of aggregator developers applaud the suggestion in his comments, so maybe we'll start to see these sorts of smarts in a software generation or so.

The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)

X windows:
We will dump no core before its time.
One good crash deserves another.
A bad idea whose time has come. And gone.
We make excuses.
It didn’t even look good on paper.
You laugh now, but you’ll be laughing harder later!
A new concept in abuser interfaces.
How can something get so bad, so quickly?
It could happen to you.
The art of incompetence.
You have nothing to lose but your lunch.
When uselessness just isn’t enough.
More than a mere hindrance. It’s a whole new barrier!
When you can’t afford to be right.
And you thought we couldn’t make it worse.

If it works, it isn’t X windows.
