Comment (by Otto42):

 markjaquith: That addition is great and all, but it doesn't allow you to
 replace Magpie because wp_rss and get_rss are not actually used anywhere
 in WordPress.

 In order to replace the RSS features with a plugin, you need to be able to
 replace fetch_rss and emulate its behavior.

 Also, with just that action at the top, there's still no way to prevent
 the Magpie class from loading anyway. I suggest the attached patch, which
 will let you define SKIP_MAGPIE and not load any of the whole mess, thus
 allowing for a REAL replacement feed plugin.
