The RSS feed of Recent Changes should be enhanced with GeoRSS coordinates when
available from IP address editing, or page or file upload coordinates (e.g.
using the {{coords|...}} template or uploaded file geocoding.)  This would
allow a more visually interesting depiction of recent changes when they are
being used to show representative edits.

I it would probably be best to include only the first three paragraphs of the
diff in such a feed, and if there is some way to get a thumbnail of the page's
first File/Image when available, that would be even better.

I asked about this on IRC, and something like it was already done on the old
stable toolserver, but it wasn't moved to the new toolserver as far as I can
