Include feed files in the theme system to allow custome feeds

    I would like WordPress to check and see if a feed file (such as wp-rss2.php) is in the folder for the current theme and if it find one use it over the standard feed file. This will allow feed customization without having to hack the standard files.

    A logical extension and improvement of the theming system.

    I disagree. "Theme" implies a visual connotation. Feeds are not meant to be themed, but read.

    Absolutely agree. This would have been especially helpful for the Atom 1.0 transition for people who wanted it without the crazy plugin hack required to do it.

    RE: akbigdog — 'Theme' doesn't sound visual to me. It applies to presentation, yes; but presentation is not only the visuals, but extends also to how you want to present your feeds to readers. In that sense this idea is a logical extension of the theme system.

    It's a must-have. For instance, I like the categories of an item to show inside the post feed title, not on the post html title (because the html interface allows me to indicate the categories in other ways).

    Example:

    html: "this is my title"
    rss: "this is my title [ category 1, category 2 ]"
