[development] Aggregator2 / Podcast Aggregator

One of the additions to agg2 I've made so far is a aggregator2_enclosure
module. Since podcasts include an <enclosure> or <link rel="enclosure">
in each RSS/Atom item, I made agg2_enclosure.module check the mime_type
of the enclosure and either create an audio/video node depending on the
type and they have a relational table linking them to the agg2_item. I
probably should have used the node relativity module but just thought
it'd be easier to do it myself, but integration with another module of
that would allow for "linking" with the agg2_item which would allow
cascading deletes using hook_nodeapi, etc. My module is not nearly
dynamic as it should be but could be a starting point.
I assume you know that agg2 items come in as "nodes" of type
aggregator2_item. What kind of functionality did you have planned to
import nodes from feeds?
Sometime this week I'll be posting all this work to my sandbox (robroy)
and will post here once I have done so.
