Create a new Ticket on Trac: http://trac.wordpress.org/ and attach a diff  
of trunk for consideration for 2.8 (too late in the 2.7 dev cycle to  
include new features)

Note that it'll need to be PHP 4.3+ compatible at present, If its not, not  
to worry, someone else might modify it to be compatible :)
(I only mention that, as another importer recently posted there is PHP5  

As for the podPress support, Media handling is getting overhauled in 2.8,  
So it might be possible to support that (I doubt a core-included importer  
will handle plugins too.. but it depends on the implementation i guess)
