The aggregator supports OPML export for all feeds, but not import. This
patch enables import of OPML lists, allowing people to import lists of
RSS feeds they've already assembled in another RSS app.

1. This patch does not conform Drupal's coding style at all.

2. The error handling of aggregator_import() is bare bones (not

3. Use drupal_xml_parser_create() instead of xml_parser_create().

4. Drop the "sorry"'s.

5.  form_set_error() is used incorrectly.

Please refine and resubmit.

No doubt I've just irritated some one but after spending the day finding
out how to run diff/patch on win32 and getting that done - guess what!  

That's right the form for OPML is tantalisingly there and yet it is
beyond me to get it to anything (like submit).  The browse button gets
the page to hang for a few moments but that is all.

Would be nice if someone could revive this code.

A-Ha! I got it to work.

The OPML list must have been downloaded and can then be uploaded (via
browse) and then it will work.  Very well.

Too lazy|busy to handle this, it would be nice to see this come through.

I'm cleaning this up now, here is what I've got so far:
- Now Uses drupal_xml_phraser_create
- Applies Aganist HEAD
- Some Sorry's removed.

To be done:
- Conform to coding style
- Don't give error on existing entry
- Fix form error code

I haven't given up, it's just taking a while.

I have rerolled the patch, it applies more cleanly to HEAD now. Also, I
fixed a bug (I think), $feed['TITLE'] should have been $feed['TEXT'],
right? The patch as is works for me. Please lets try to get this into
