I don't want one-parser-for-all-solutions either - see my comments on
the wiki, which includes one potential workflow that I personally need:
With that said, speed is not really an issue here, IMO - just like we
can (and will) fiddle/scale with the downloading of thousands of feeds
in hook_cron, the same thing can be done with processing time. As
already mentioned in the comments of his tests, SimplePie does a lot of
filtering to ensure the data is sanitized (granted, a lot of what Drupal
could do as well, but which wouldn't have been considered part of the
original parsing times, I suspect). What SimplePie does provide,
however, is a much greater field of correct parsing - something that
Drupal's core parser fails to do (helpfully contributing to its
appearance of "speed").

Yes, I've been watching. However, this is
Drupal 7 material. I can't wait that long.
