XPath to RSS scraper

'xpath2rss' is an XPath to RSS scraper. XPath makes a better HTML scraper than regex (the typical solution) because it XPATH is aware of XML's (and therefore HTML's) syntax. This should make xpath2rss more reliable, and much easier to use, once you understand XPath (an excellent tool for working with XML).
