About 6 months ago I brought up the possibility of a template that would render your friends page as an RSS feed, meaning I could check my friends' posts through an aggregator. Having looked through code, it seemed fairly easy to do. However at the time it was suggested (by Brad? I forget) that it was a bad time, since the migration to the new templating system was still in progress.
Is that still the case? Is now an appropriate time to add that feature? If so, I'd be happy to write the patch myself, though I can promise the first version will look ignorant.
