[wp-hackers] Filter Hooks for Enclosures

Didn't say it wasn't a sizeable library.  But we're talking about going from 
a fixed file per feed type to pretty much any feed type desired (well, 
that's been coded) via one translation call.  And I don't see how FC is 
going to be that significantly heavier-weight than whatever brand-new stuff 
Owen is dreaming about -- and FC is already established, used, tested., 
etc... ;)

Also, with WP-Cache in place, feeds would only be generated every N hours 
anyway, so I'm not (personally) concerned about overhead (we are talking 
about a bigger future version here...).

It's also a _lot_ of code (several hundred lines worth) that would
replace the mostly functional ~70 lines of code for feeds as present.
