[swish-e] Using SWISH-E with Mailman ... now with RSS feeds

I have a page about my integration of Mailman and SWISH-E here:

I've been doing this for a while, but I realized the other day that I 
could use the indexes to produce an RSS feed for the mailing list!  I 
wrote up some details about it (scroll down, it's near the end) and 
included a link to download the code -- it's only ~100 lines, have fun. 
Someone could probably do something similar in Perl or whatnot.

One thing stumped me, though: what's a simple way to query "all 
documents" ...?  I made up a query that I think will never return any 
documents and put "not" in front of it.  Is there a more straightforward 
way of doing this?  Maybe this should be an FAQ.

One interesting twist on the RSS generator is that you can integrate it 
with a search, to get a "subset feed" -- you can search on From: and 
Subject: lines as well as searching the body of the messages ... on a 
high-volume list, this might come in handy; I give a few examples on the 
page, plus point you to a list that has support for it built-in that you 
can play with if you like.
