Nice. It even came up with a few I thought worthwhile enough to put in the quote pool for Q4TD.

comment MetaOverflow: Stack Exchange related ATOM feeds
No library used. I just generate the XML fragment for each entry and store the bytes. To assemble the feed, I write the preamble bit of XML, then each entry, then the closing XML - all to a ByteArrayOutputStream, which then gets poked into memcache so repeated calls for unchanged data can get a quicker response.

comment StackList - List Your Apps, Track Bugs, and More!
Can I suggest StackList would really benefit from some RSS feeds. One for new apps, and one for new libraries (and perhaps one combined) at least. Thanx.

Nope, wasn't me. I was just using it as an example. That's why I phrased it above as "say I had been the person who wrote..."

There's one application StackList doesn't have listed that it should, and that's StackList! I was looking it up so I could suggest you add some RSS feeds to the site.
