new FeedHelper

  . reimplementation of RssHelper to support all RSS versions
  . very few code left of Georges original RssHelper
  . supports RSS versions 0.91, 1.0 and 2.0
  . supports Atom 1.0
  . supports rough OPML 1.0
  . should be backward compatible to the RssHelper for RSS 0.91 feeds
  . just change "helper :rss" to "helper :feed" for access to all the 
new features
  . not much tested yet, so be careful, but test a lot and report bugs
  . big RDoc, so everyone knows how to use it
  . more tests, but it still could use a lot more.. (but tests are no 
validator, right?)

RSS 0.91, 1.0, 2.0 and Atom 1.0 validate against 
http://feedvalidator.org with a quick testapp I've written. It's not in 
a real-world app yet (oxyliquit has some issues with current glycerin), 
so there might still be bugs.
OPML ist not tested in any app yet. If someone has time to test it or 
knows a better usage, please tell me, I might improve it then.
