It seems I'm slightly ahead of schedule and have added most of the support required for using a website's favicons as the icons used to represent the feed in the RSS Bandit feed subscriptions tree view. Below is a screenshot of what the list of subscriptions looks like when some of the feeds have favicons.

There are still a couple of fit & finish work items to complete such as adding an option to turn off favicons for the people who find the people's choices of icons too distracting. However for the most part this feature is done.

Over the next few days, I'll start taking a look at what it means to add support for podcasting to the application. Since stumbling upon the very hilarious yet quite accurate review of Pirates of the Carribean 2 by Ask A Ninja, I've been wanting to try out subscribing to podcasts. However I'm not sure what the expected user experience should be so I'm going to try out a couple of podcast clients over the next week. So far I have Doppler Radio and Juice (formerly iPodder) on my list. Is there any other client I should be trying out? Also are there any obvious features I should or should not add?
