So as a user, how do I configure my Sourceforge site's home page to have
inline content from a news RSS feed?  Do I edit the sitemap, adding the
RSS feed inside a <map:aggregate>, or does Forrest provide a layer of
abstraction above this?  I assume a 'layer of abstraction' implies using
CInclude or something, not <map:aggregate>?
