[Looking at nightly /]

roy at BAINE:~/public_html/wordpress> grep -R wp_rss *
wp-includes/rss.php:function wp_rss ($url, $num) {
roy at BAINE:~/public_html/wordpress> grep -R get_rss *
wp-includes/rss.php:function get_rss ($uri, $num = 5) { // Like get  
posts, but for RSS

Seems like they may be deprecated. The Codex might shed some light on this.

I wonder if SimplePie is somehow related to MagPie RSS. While I don't  
know what you try to achieve, if you want to plug in a feed, why not  
just redirect all requests to the feeds?

It usually gets pasted into the Wiki. The archive seemed complete the  
last time I looked. *smile*
