[wp-hackers] Dashboard performance

Actually, my WP CG-FeedRead plugin (also 'not dependent or restricted') has 
a feature I called 'MultiFeed' which can pull N items apiece from M feeds 
specified, and then 'intermix' results based on the GMT timestamps on the 
feed items.  (I also have a little-used and untested feature called 
'ReFeed', which will regenerate an XML/RSS simplified output for the 
multifeed..)  And unlike RSS Merge, it has its own XML parser, all in one. 
;) ;)

But, the main issue is making the dashboard easier to support alternate 
user-chosen 'data', rather than just feeds.... There's a lot of great 
information you might want to present there (think Mint, or my CG-Referrer 
stats tracker..).  Thus my proposition to think in terms of 'dashboard

Yes,  this  was mentioned before in this mailing list. This can easily  be
achieved  by plugging in RSS Merge v0.2.0, which is closely-related to the
WordPress   codebase,   but  is  not  dependent  or  restricted   by   it:

To provide its short introduction:

Of  course,  it's also possible to use the exiting framework  and  there's
Planet  as well < http://www.planetplanet.org/ > . These tools give wider,
more  flexible real estate (in the context of screen size) and can obviate
the need for bloated desktop/Web-based RSS reader
