Here's an off-the-wall suggestion...
What if we built feeds as PHP objects, fed them through a filter, then
converted the object to XML?
There are some extant implementations of Object<->XML in PHP, so it
might not be too difficult a conversion. Manipulating the feed XML via
DOM in a plugin would be swell.
Before I continue blathering about this, how much does this idea suck?
