Hi Ian,

A few thoughts and questions...
If this is a proposal for an open-source FeedBurner (I think somebody said that earlier),
I'm for it - FeedBurner is ripe for some competition. :)

I get the ping/poll thing, caching functionality is clear, but I don't get what you mean by
"personalized URL", "source feed would then be adjusted", and "all external links would be
personalized".  I'm imagining some RSS/Atom feed with various items, absolute URLs to external
sites/pages, the usual stuff, and I don't know where the personalized/adjusted bits fit in.
 Could you please explain and give some examples?

I think you were the Lucene GData Server (Summer of Code project) mentor to Simon, and Simon
is planning on continuing his work on that project within Lucene even after the summer.  Would
that project and the one you are proposing not have a lot in common, both in terms of code/logic,
as well as the context (serving feeds)?  If so, would it make more sense to implement this
in Java?
