Ok. What about a news_channels_remove.xml file, which is only installed
systemwide? The format is the same as for the news_channels.xml but only
with the name attribute for every channel (the other
attributes are not needed). We load the channels in the remove-file and
compare them during loading with the channels in the users
news_channels.xml file. If there is a hit then skip this channel and go on
with loading the users file.

Well, if you think this is too much effort for a nearly unused feature or
don't like the idea at all, just tell me. I just found the Eazel entry in
the news, while playing with nautilus and thought this should be updated.
Maybe its totally sufficient to remove it from the systemwide file.
