Deprecate the RSS and atom feed code #31

Seems like neither chrome nor edge ever supported showing RSS feeds, and now firefox is going to deprecate them as well which relegates them to the area of server to server communication, which is a niche.

The only use case that I have encountered was using RSS feed to populate mailchimp based newsletter, but even there the current feed generated lacks all the required attributes, namely featured image.

This should be deprecated from core and move into a core plugin if there is any demand at all.

Core plugin, definitely.

The main use case for fetch_feed outside of core is to grab plugin and theme "news stream". I have a feeling that no user will actually miss it, but need to create a stub for the function if the core plugin is not loaded to prevent errors in this case.

"all in one event calendar" seems to be the most challenging in this regard as it directly uses the simple_pie APIs, so might need a stub for it as well. Hmm, looks like wptouch also needs it, SEO ultimate, and probably some others.
