If anyone tries to add a feed and sees an error from the XML parser,
it's the feed retrieval timing out - just hit refresh; I'll try to do
something about extending the timeout.

For the Perly Savvy:

I think I need to change from using LWP::Simple to the full version -
some RSS feeds can take up to thirty seconds to appear and I need to
take this into account.  At present, Aggie can't handle Atom feeds as it
is based on the XML::RSS module; in time I'll probably use XML::Parser
directly.

Cheers
