[Nautilus-list] Re: rss feeds

So we now have 3 types of content that people should be able to install by
clicking on a link on a web page:
- Nautilus themes
- Nautilus scripts
- RSS feeds.

Andy's interested in helping out with this and may take a shot at
implementing Ben's idea over the next few days.

To begin with, we should organize these 3 pages in a similar fashion, but in
a second phase (in a month or two?) we should integrate this into a
nautilus.themes.org type of thing,
