There's a point I want to say. Writing your own module/code is sometimes a lot easier
than spending your time to understand the current code. I'm not sure what lead to having
all those aggregator modules around. It even becomes worse when you find that most of
them are either unmaintained, not working for you or your setup or not ported to the
latest drupal. Then you end up writing your own.
I had this problem with the stock aggregator module bringing my server to its
knees. No time to push changes to core aggregator. The solution ? I have my own 100th
aggregator module (Yes, I'm serious) and I'm thinking about releasing it since I know I'll
maintain it and keep it up to date.

I guess we need to work on the core one to fix it.
