feed splicing

So I’m kvetching to a friend in IM how there aren’t really any user-friendly tools out there for feed splicing (and how both the Bloglines and Newsgator APIs should break out of the feed-by-feed mode).  How is this remix cultcha supposed to happen without things that make it easy to remix?

And then literally less than an hour later I find out about the new “share” feature in Google Reader, which will output recent items from a labeled set of feeds (or your starred items) as a styled clip for your site, or as a feed itself.  Voila, user friendly feed splicing.
