  You can use shimbun with Gnus, but currently you have 2
alternatives, Wanderlust and Mew.

  At least as for me, emacs-w3m is not so big.  I think it is almost
under control of Mr. Tsuchiya (and Mr. Teranish who is the author of
shimbun library).  And from now on it will possibly become more big
with more useful shimbun backends (not with complicated new
mechanism).  We cannot compare emacs-w3m with Emacs itself.

  Talking about future of RSS and Shimbun is interesting.  I like it.
But quick integration seems to be very difficult.  One point that I
felt is your opinion relys on Gnus.
