[wp-hackers] Filter Hooks for Enclosures

There have been multiple calls here (in two threads) to switch over to
something like FeedCreator for maintaining the various feed formats. Alex
presented FeedCreator originally, I gave it a +1, and in a separate thread
Mark and Kimmo basically both gave it approval as well (Kimmo uses it
already...). FC looks like it uses the create-in-php,
That should make for easier coding, less maintenance work per-feed, faster
enhancements. We might have to 'adopt' the FC project to get it where we
want, but no need to start from scratch.
