 The problem is not the rel=alternate tag. The problem is actually that
 Google Reader adds a source tag:
         <source gr:stream-
             <title type="html">BreakMusicBlog</title>
             <link rel="alternate" href="http://twistedrat.blogspot.com/"

 The diff adds some hooks to detect the beginning and end of this source
 tag in a Google Reader RSS feed. When encountered, it will toggle a flag
 to tell the parser to ignore links, titles, and other data encountered in
 this section.
