[development] Aggregator2 / Podcast Aggregator

I'm implementing a podcast aggregator and I'm working with Agg2.  I was 
going to modify aggregator2_parse_items() to pull the <ENCLOSURE> (which 
contains the podcast mp3 or whatever) and other fields out of the RSS 
feed and add them to the agg2_item type.  But I feel that the following 
might be a better solution and would like some feedback.

Would it be worthwhile to add an invoke_all call for '_parse_items' and 
pass the $items to that when parsing new RSS items?  This would allow 
other modules to react when agg2 does an update as at the nodeapi level, 
you can't access any info that was in the RSS feed that agg2 isn't 
already sending to the database.

Thanks for any input.
