A webfeed storage engine...

While I'm being insane...

CREATE TABLE housing ...
 ENGINE=FEED
 CONNECTION="http://seattle.craigslist.org/hhh/index.rss";

SELECT title FROM housing WHERE ...;


I think I can get it working with a week or less work.

I thought of doing this at the Yahoo Pipes talk at the Vancouver PHP conference a few months ago, but dimissed it as a joke. I thought of it again at Pasha Sadri of Yahoo's final keynote yesterday. This time, I know that I can do it, but I don't know if I can dismiss it as a joke.

Is this a great idea, or a sick one?
