           Summary: [Patch] Support feed deltas

Support RFC3229 with the feed extension.

Instead of returning the full feed, supporting servers will return the delta
since the If-Modified-Since timestamp or the If-None-Match ETag identifier.
Reduces the bandwidth requirements for users and servers like, and reduces
processing required as feeds only contain new entries since the last time they
where checked.

The only modification required to support this in Akregator is adding the
`A-IM: feed` header in requests when updating feeds. I’ve only tested this with
Akregator, where it works as desired.

Does Syndication have other uses that I’m not aware of where the full feed
would be preferred instead of deltas?
