Yeah, it is almost similar to rss feeds and it is simple. I've attached
a sample ATOM 1.0 feed.

By redoing so, what we are going to achieve ? Are there any complaints
about using PyRSS2Gen from the users ? I'm unsure about its current
state. IMO, PyRSS2Gen is available in all package formats (for example,
in Ubuntu, by default it is available in universe repository). So, if we
can do things smartly and easily using available libraries, why we
should puddle with 'print' statements to generate the xml content when
things are already stable.

Yeah, we can use 'print "<item>i am summary</item>"'. But, how is it
different from using python libraries ? IMO, if we use python libraries,
it'll be easy to maintain and in case there is a revision (example: ATOM
2.0), we can add a new plugin easily. It's just my opinion though,
comments are welcome.
