Cool.

As with most things, there's a balance to be attained. I'm all for
modularity and code re-use, but if that modularity saves you an arguably
small amount of work (these feed formats are super-trivial) but costs your
users in that they've got to go grab a bunch of custom modules before their
scripts work, that's something to consider.
