why is this useful? Why not just add support for a list of pkg
names/globs to repo-rss and cut out the middle man?

Alternatively why don't we take a step back and make a list of all the
features we want and write one tool that'll handle all of those items
w/o lots of intermediate steps.

I'll start with the feature set:

1. new packages to extras - including owners.list knowledge
2. rss feed of the new packages
3. rss feed of the new packages per-comps.xml-based group

what else?
