Can SimplePie parse microformats like hAtom?

Although hAtom is designed to allow webpages to be syndicated, parsing RSS and Atom data out of XML documents is fundamentally very different from parsing microformats from HTML/XHTML webpages.

There have been discussions between the SimplePie team, Alex Hillman and Chris Messina about bringing microformats to SimplePie, but the limitations of parsing XHTML pages as XML have put those ambitions on hold for the time being.

There are some things on the roadmap for SimplePie 2 that may allow for things like microformats, but we need to take the time to build the proper tools to enable them instead of just trying to hack stuff together.
