Not to comment on the plugin author's work. But to exclude categories  
from the RSS feed is quite simple and can be accomplished using build- 
in WP hooks and not any query manipulation needed. Consider the simple  
function below.

In this I want to exclude categories 1, 32, 16 and 28 from the main  
RSS feed. Drop this into your theme's functions.php and tweak the  
category IDs.

function myRSSPostsFilter($query) {
	if ($query->is_feed) {
	return $query;

Or you can use my Simply Exclude plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/ 
  to have a nice user interface so you don't have to touch the code.  
The code uses the same basic principal as the function above. I wrote  
a similar plugin that allow exclude of categories, tags and authors  
from is_front, is_archive, is_search and is_feed actions.
