Data is just data to me, however it is represented :-)

For me, atom feeds are just an 'extra' simple XML mapping:
FieldName -> NodePath 
Possibly with a grouping concept.

Still, I will need the Atom export, so eventually it will be made.

In fact, Inoussa Ouedraogo (hope I spelled that correct) made a complete SDO
implementation in FPC which should be powerful enough to able to handle this.
