xsltproc fails to download some RSS feeds



Hi all,

some RSS feeds stopped working recently for me when using
emacspeak-rss-browse. The problem seems to be xsltproc failing to
fetch the files properly because they download fine with e.g. wget.
Examples are:

http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot
http://feeds.feedburner.com/UbuntuTutorials/
http://digg.com/rss/containertechnology.xml

the first two produce an error in the *xslt errors*  buffer saying
that the file is empty. The third one blocks for a long time and
finally fails too.

Anyway, the problem can be solved by using wget for downloading as
already supported in emacspeak-xslt-url. Here is a patch that adds the
same option to emacspeak-xslt-xml-url. Just set
emacspeak-xslt-use-wget-to-download to t and the feeds should work
again.

Best regards, Lukas
