Personally, I'd like to keep Abdera focussed on Atom and extensions
that work with Atom.  So GData, SSE, iTunes are all fine, but I have
no interest in expanding into other formats (any of the RSS family,
for example) or protocols (the metaweblog APIs, for example).

As far as collaboration with Rome, I think it'd be fantastic if Rome
decided to use the Abdera parser for their Atom support, but I'm less
interested in merging the two projects since it seems like Rome has a
much larger scope than Abdera does.

All just inmy opinion of course,
