Comment(by cbanack):

 Unfortunately, the WP development team does not have the ability to "fix
 the problem" for every plugin out there.    But they do have the ability
 to "fix the results", which is what they should do.

 A quick search through google or the wordpress forums will reveal that
 this is not a trivial issue that only a few people are experiencing--it's
 been an ongoing pain point for users for years.   And only a few of them
 are blaming their plug-ins most people who encounter this issue just just
 say:  wordpress is cool, but its rss feeds don't always work.

 I don't have the specific php expertise to evaluate the performance issue
 that you've mentioned regarding my proposed patch.   But I urge the WP dev
 team to seriously weigh the trade offs involved.  Bear in mind that most
 users won't have the time or ability to track down and solve this problem
 for themselves as I have.

 Surely there's a more effective solution than:   "just make everyone else
 stop writing bad plugins"?  That's just not practical.
