Starred Items


Provide a special folder for "starred" or "favorite" items. Indicating that a feed's item is starred causes it to also appear under this special folder.

Consider implementing this folder as a special RSS feed so that it's synced along with the other feeds. That way it won't require any special handling.

When the script comes across a feed with a particular name, like "RubyFeed.Favorites", it displays the folder as a star icon rather than the normal icon. A reference to that feed is also stored in a named variable so that newly starred items can be added to it.

If the feed isn't found during initialization, then use the Windows RSS APIs to create it programmatically. (I seem to recall that this is possible.)

See if it's possible and makes sense to store starred feed items as references in the starred feed, rather than copying the entire item. (I'm not actually sure whether either is possible.)
