Shimbun backend for FFII


I received the attached message.  I will be willing to add sb-ffii.el
to our CVS repository.  Before adding it, I would like to mention
several suggestions.

I have just checked the WEB page <http://www.ffii.org/news/rss/>, and
found more RSS feeds than the current sb-ffii.el supports.  Can you
add other RSS feeds and improve group names?  SwpatcninoEn and
SwpatcninoEn-ffii are difficult to imagine groups' contents.  Here is
my proposal.

    SwpatcninoEn      => softwarepatent
    SwpatcninoEn-ffii => softwarepatent.ffii
    SwpatcninoDe      => softwarepatent.de
    SwpatcninoDe-ffii => softwarepatent.de.ffii

You can remove `shimbun-ffii-content-start' and `shimbun-ffii-content-end'
safely.  When they are not specified, Shimbun library will remove no
snippet from retrieved pages when makeing articles.

You can remove `shimbun-ffii-server-name' also.

You should add a copyright header to the file as follows:

    Copyright (C) 2005 ....

I wish that my suggestions may help you to improve your program.

below you find a Shimbun backend for FFII RSS feeds.  Would it be
possible to include that in future versions of EMACS-W3M?
