Harry Pierson has been working on a RSS generator for WSS (and therefore I assume also SPS). I've been going the other way around, and have written some WebParts for rendering RSS. I started with a simple single webpart that rendered an individual feed, then moved onto a pair of parts, that implement a master/detail style view with post titles in one part, and post content in a second, the two linked via ICellProvider / ICellConsumer. I could go one further and add another part that rendered a list feeds (say from an OPML file), giving you all the bits to embed a 3 paned aggregator into a SPS portal page.
