#4 Bad feeds slow down or kill the update

At least on my system, if enough feeds are slow to
respond, or down, the update takes so long that
something is giving up. I suspect my PHP installation
may have a script time limit set. It's reasonable to
assume that other people's servers may have timeouts
too, and FoF shouldn't require this to be changed.

The update should be faster, and should get past bad
feeds more quickly. If it could be parallelized
somehow, that'd be great.

    How about kicking off the read interface once the first feed
    has updated then, every time they go back there the new
    posts will have arrived. And updating should be a theaded
    thing :)
