Actually based on a suggestion I got from the list, I will
make these configurable. Just haven't made the change yet.
You'll be able to change the element usage probably with

Hmmm... didn't know that most people made their pubs accessible.
Just set $PmFeedCacheDir in your config.php to go somewhere
else (before pmfeed.php is included). Is there a better default?
Feel free to suggest something. At least it is settable today.

Sounds like a good add.

My recipes tend to disallow arbitrary HTML... but
that's probably more of "me" disallowing it. I'll see if
I can add it as an option (even if I personally think it could
mess up many things on a PmWiki page).
