This is good to know; thanks for pointing it out.

If you can summarize the specific changes to sgmllib that cause problems for 
the feed parser, and identify the tests there that rely on the old behavior, 
I'll be glad to look at the problems.  I expect to have some time in the next 
few evenings, so I should be able to look at these soon.

Is the SourceForge CVS the definitive development source for the feed parser?
