I'm not familiar with the atom feed format, but if its anywhere near as
simplistic as what we're getting out of svn2rss.py, you hardly need another
library. In fact, you could greatly enhance the usability of svn2rss.py by
removing its dependency on PyRSS2Gen -- it's not like print '<item>' and
'<link>' strings is rocket science, and now your script works completely
with stock Python modules.
