Smarter Syndication support

Title
Smarter Syndication support

Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to look at a web page, find the feeds in the "rel" tags, and use those.

Full description of the idea
Taking, as an example, The Orwell Diaries (http://orwelldiaries.wordpress.com/) - if the average person wants to syndicate them they end up scouring the page looking for something that means syndication. It would be much better if they could enter the web page address into the /syn page, and have that search for "rel" tags that indicate where the RSS feed is.

Not all pages even list their RSS feed - and I've had to help out numerous friends who couldn't work out how to set up a syndicated LJ feed.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Make it a lot easier to set up a syndicated feed.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Can't think of any.
