Wordpress RSS bandwidth fixes

Crazy But Able: While checking my stats one day, I discovered that halfway through the month I had already sent out over 60 megs of data, just over RSS. [cut] The second bug is by far more serious. When attempting to connect to an RSS feed, well behaved RSS aggregators send the If-Modified-Since header to the server as part of the HTTP request. The server is supposed to respond with response code 304: Not Modified if nothing has been changed. Wordpress does this, but then sends the full text of the feed anyway! So no bandwidth was saved!

Randy: Is this bug in the default setup of Wordpress?
