I recently needed to add entries from "remember the milk"(RTM)[1] to my
org files... I found a script that converts to an orgfile[2], but also
the standard org-feed.el that can handle atom feeds. I played around a
bit with the latter and came up with the functions below that parse the
atom feed from RTM and also parse things like the due-date, tags, etc.

I also filter the feed by only including items that have a due date set
via the filter function.

Perhaps this is interesting for someone else, so I thought I post it
here. I could also upload it to Worg if there is interest, but am not
sure where it would go (don't use Worg that much lately).
