feedparser media:title problems

Then there's a workaround...

For some days, some of my "other weblogs" feeds had displayed something funny in some of the entries. For example the titles of Adamo's posts were shown just as "adamo". Turns out there is a little bug in the python feedparser module... it's already a submitted issue, that the media:title tag is misparsed as title. For me this happened with two feeds from Wordpress blogs. The workaround was to use the atom feed instead of the rss feed, as described on the MiniPlanet wiki page.

Update: There's even an unofficial patch for the issue. I haven't tested this one yet.
