I've just implemented support for atom feeds.

Tested with dozens of atom and rss feeds I found from all over the
place, with no noticeable errors on org-webring's end.

I haven't updated the README or version -- I will leave that to you.

Hi,

Thanks for the patch. Overall, it /looks/ pretty well, but I ran into
a problem with it. It doesn't know how to handle Atom dates.

We currently use =parse-time-string= to parse RSS dates, which follow
RFC 822 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc822.html). Atom, on the other hand,
uses the timestamp specification from RFC 3339
(http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3339.html), which Emacs doesn't know how to
handle and just returns a list of nils (at least on my end).

I'm curious how does it work for you. I'm on Emacs 26.3. Is this maybe
something 27 fixes or are there other things that prevent me from
getting this to work?

Cheers,
Sergiu
