In case someone starts thinking about formats:

RDF- sorry, but I haven't seen a fully complaint RDF parser in PHP that 
is lightweight yet.

RSS- ask again once there is an RSS parser properly abstracted out of 
the aggregator module and into a .inc. Also, this data actually doesn't 
map especially well into RSS.

XML- its okay if you can stand parsing it with SAX.

INI- simplest to write and parse and suitable for name-value pairs, 
which is what I see here. And no, the file itself wouldn't be named *.ini.

I'd like to see this funtionality in Drupal core right on admin/modules. 
I thing nedjo might be working on this. Kieran- what were the two issue
