Great. Let me bring a few other ideas and patches to your attention from
the Debian BTS:
There's a maybe not very good patch attached, but the basic idea
seems faily good -- rather than looking for "./config.py", look
for config.py in the same directory as whatever feed file is
http://bugs.debian.org/289191 , http://bugs.debian.org/309869
The first asks for the ability to edit feed info, and the second
suggests separating the list of feeds out into a user-editable
file aside from the other cached data, which would nicely solve
the problem of editing them. (As well as backing them up,
checking them into svn, and some other things. ;-)
This is a patch that adds support for adding an extra email
header to a feed, which can be useful for filtering, or maybe
setting a different From address or something.
Request to let the mail date be set based on the <pubDate> tag
of each item in the feed. I haven't checked to see if just
adding "pubdate" to DATE_HEADER_ORDER would do this.
A bug about someone who corrupted their feed file somehow.
The relevant bit is about 5 messages down where there's a patch
to catch EOFError when loading the feed file and abort with a
helpful error message instead of a backtrace.
An old patch to support importing an OPML file to add feeds.
