necho & OPML in cactus

Today I added (among other things) preliminary necho support for the aggregator in clevercactus. It didn't take long, and detection of the feed type is transparent like before with no problems, which is basically what I expected.

Another important addition for the aggregator side of cactus is the new OPML import/export feature, or as I call it, "the Russ feature" since Russ has been its most vocal advocate :). Just like email import is essential to try out a new email program, an easy way to import (and export) of a user's feed subscriptions is also crucial to try out the aggregator. (OPML is actually a generic outliner format, more flexible than to be used only for subscription lists, but it's widely used for that anyway, and many news aggregators allow import/export to it).

Looking good so far. I'll probably post a screenshot later today, or tomorrow.
