Feature Request - index RSS feeds

Hi,
I use Awasu as my desktop RSS newsreader and have a number of feeds I monitor. It would be great if X1 could index them. If I am searching for anything, I'd like to know if I have a feed that contains relevant content. Awasu reads RSS and Atom feeds, in addition to HTML by way of a plug in. In considering the merit of the program, you might be interested to know that one of the big 4 have selected them for their desktop implementation across Europe. They have quite an exceptional tool and it is free for personal use.
Thanks!
Sue

What format does the software you use hold the stuff it grabs via RSS?

Some readers use formats that X1 can index. Newsgator, for example, puts things into your email system.

I agree with your request, but I would take it further. I would like X1 to search everything I use. The problem is where people use their own proprietary file systems.

My feed items are in files will an extension named CHANNEL. But what I am talking about here is X1 reading the feed then indexing the content of the feed from the web. So it would use the Awasu data to know what to look for then go the web for the actual content (as that is where it resides).
Thanks!
