Interesting idea.  I'm not too familiar with rss other then rss feeds  
from blogs and new sites.  What sort of information do you see  
Geronimo serving via RSS?   I mean I'm sure we could serve general  
information like blogs, but I'm curious if we could use this for  
management of some kind or something totally different.

Again cool idea,
