Not a problem to add it if we have more than 10 feeds. Though ...

... I have a big problem with autogenerating it from a public writeable
wiki. Thats a nice idea to train spambots to provide our planet with
lots of spam rss feeds. Thanks, but no, there should be a human doing
it, not a script. IMO.

Its fine for the first set of config, but when we add it, it should end
up as the other planet - alioth access required. And yes, I know that
means someone who has this needs to help people from
derivatives/downstream who doesn't.
