[Haskell-cafe] porting feed to xml-enumerator

Hi Sigbjorn (and Don),

I'm back for another reason. feed leaks and uses a lot of memory due to the xml package. Rather than fix xml I ported feed to xml-enumerator, which is used by yesod and more actively maintained than xml. This seems to have fixed the problem so I'm thinking of uploading this version to hackage as feed-1.0 (which I'll use for rss2irc and hackagebot.)

Please let me know whether you agree. Also you might be interested in moving your repo (http://code.galois.com/cgi-bin/gitweb?p=feed.git;a=summary) to github ? This would make it easier to publish my changes, either to the main repo or a branch or fork. Otherwise I'll need to get them to your repo somehow.

Thanks again,

It lookas as if there's no way to get item updated date as opposed item published date, and getItemPublishDate actually gets the updated date in the case of an atom feed (http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/feed/0.3.8/doc/html/src/Text-Feed-Query.html#getItemPublishDate).
