Does using something like FeedBurner (http://www.feedburner.com/) sound like a good idea to you guys? Once you "burn" the REBOL.org feed, you could ask users to subscribe to that feed. It'd help you get some stats information about the readers. As for those who have already subscribed to the current RSS, you could do a 301 permanent redirect to the burned feed, yeah?
