[wp-hackers] Filter Hooks for Enclosures

The main benefit to using an established library is reliability. This  
library has already been tested in the wild and patched, etc. where  
new code we write today has not.

A couple hundred lines of code is not a reason to exclude something -  
code is cheap (and compressed code in a download even more so). We  
could always remove feed types from the library if we felt it  
necessary to reduce the code footprint.

The other benefit is that if we find we need something that  
FeedCreator doesn't have, we can add it and contribute it back to the  
FC project - helping build one great PHP feed creation class rather  
than having dozens around that each do a little of this and a little  
of that.
