This is only run if the user brings up the Player Controls (which in Ellipsis also uses for Media Shortcuts, System Info and the Skin's News) but if need be I'm sure we can add an enable/disable option.

The only choice here is to either remove the functionality from the skin or put the script in. This skin is for Dharma, and Dharma has no such <feed> capability.  Can the user disable this in the skin?

OT: Agreed that some sort of a news feed might be a nice addition to the addons system, though I think it would need some sort of page to aggregate all such feeds.  After all, we don't want to overwhelm the user with a bunch of information that they may not care about.

Sorry guys but is this a yes or no?

I agree that a feed url in the addon.xml would be a good idea but this was
requested to get Ellipsis up to scratch for submission on the repo.

Not cool.

Just add the script and if in the future you provide a similar core
feature, deprecate the script.

(Oh and btw, I agree that a definable feed as a core feature for at
least skins makes sense.)
