I honestly never heard of it, though I do use MagpieRSS on my own
website and in several contracts for clients. I'm always willing to
try something new though... but then again, if it's not broke, why fix

Just checked, SimpleRSS isn't PHP. It's Delphi and Kylix.

The Magpie project really shouldn't die out - the original codebase is
excellent. Why coud improve it in the WP core, and then submit patches
to the original project you know...
