newspipe patches

For several years I’ve used newspipe as part of my RSS reading toolset (the other main tool is Google Reader). Newspipe seems to have been somewhat abandoned judging from the sourceforge site, so here are the small set of patches that I’m using:

Remove the local version of feedparser, as Debian has a newer version available via apt-get.

Next up is to replace the use of mimewriter, but that will have to wait for another day.

Update: After importing the original CVS repository, I’ve added these patches to a repository at github. I noticed one other repository there - it has a couple of additional changes that I’ll look at, particular as I may want to have newspipe talk to Gmail in the near future.
