Updated WikiFeeds Extension

Gregory Szorc
I have updated my WikiFeeds MediaWiki extension.  It now is written as a
special page and integrates completely with MediaWiki without the need
to run an external script.

The purpose of WikiFeeds is to supplement MediaWiki's built-in feed
generation.  Feeds generated through WikiFeeds go through the parser
before being rendered so the output is readable to those not familiar
with wiki syntax.  WikiFeeds also provides ATOM 1.0 feeds (not available
by default in MediaWiki) and some highly-requested feeds, such as user
watchlist.

Info and source code available at
http://opensource.case.edu/projects/MediaWikiHacks/wiki/WikiFeeds
Demo at http://wiki.case.edu/Special:WikiFeeds

Features:

ATOM 1.0 and RSS 2.0 feed generation for the following:

*Newest articles
*Recently changed articles
*Per-user recent changes
*Per-user newest articles
*Per-user watchlist
*Per-category recently changed articles
*Per-category newest articles

It will also generate the necessary links in pages for feed
auto-discovery (e.g. if you are on a page in the category namespace, you
get <link rel="alternate">'s for the appropriate feeds).

I am aware it doesn't have caching built-in.  I will consider adding it
if people find this add-on useful.

If you have any questions or encounter any problems, feel free to bug me.
