Im all for DCOP RSS being moved to kdenetwork.  Ferich, how far is it away 
from being ready in your opinion?  Have we worked out all of the issues on 
searching with syndic8?  Can we live without those while we port KNT and 
Kontact to it?

Tobias, I know you love my dcopservices, wanna use another one? ;)

The advantage of dcoprss over plain librss is that if you are running KNT, and 
Kontact at once, maby along with the RSS sidebar, you might tick off a 
network admin reloading the same RSS file 3+ times in a row.  DCOP RSS 
provides a central way to search/manage and update RSS feeds and will keep 
server load down.

So far the konqi sidebar uses it, but I think the dcop portion of the API is 
close enough to usable for most projects.  

Just my 2c
