rssCloud support in Radio3

The RSS feeds that Radio3 generates, starting in v0.75, have <cloud> elements. This means that people who subscribe to your feed in compatible aggregators will be notified immediately when you post a new item, and can show the news to readers immediately.

This functionality is called rssCloud, it has been part of RSS since version 0.92.

Here's my linkblog feed with rssCloud support, as an example.

River4 supports rssCloud, as well as WordPress.

Andrew Shell has released an rssCloud server for Node.js. We use his server for Radio3 feeds.
