Just checked - this also affects local RSS readers and stuff.
Basically anything that uses conditional get requests, which is mostly just
RSS readers due to their high polling frequency.

Anyway, it's only serious for FeedBurner since other RSS readers will just
give you a "feed on error" notice or something similar - but FeedBurner will
kill your entire FB feed until it's fixed.

I don't think there's a need for another release or something, just an
official announcement/warning maybe...

Thanks for the awesome quick fix - mad props :)
