> Even with that, though, we really shouldn't agonize over being as forgiving of bad RSS as, say, a browser is of bad HTML.  If it's not even well-formed XML, then we're doing everyone, including ourselves, a disservice by trying to handle it.  12 seconds worth of cleanup is a waste of 11.8 seconds.

Oh God, not you too.

People! Sanitation has /nothing/ to do with whether a feed is valid or 
well-formed or not! SimplePie is sanitizing feeds similarly to the 
Drupal equivalents of check_plain, check_markup, filter_xss, etc., etc. 
It is not fixing broken XML feeds. Please stop thinking that AA knows 
what he thinks I'm talking about.
