Embed RSS feed into wiki page

Description

This is a macro to embed a RSS feed into a Trac wiki page. This is useful for embedding the output or a ticket query from other Trac instances into a wiki page.

To display the RSS feed, the existing HTML is stripped out. A parameter controls the display of a preview of the first 512 characters of each item. See the examples below.

Parameters are given as key-value pairs, such as in param=value.

Embedding the RSS feed from local ticket query:

[[RssEmbed(url=http://127.0.0.1:8000/test/query?status=!closed&format=rss&order=priority)]]

Adding the options parameter to display the first 512 characters of each item:

[[RssEmbed(url=http://127.0.0.1:8000/test/query?status=!closed&format=rss&order=priority,details=true)]]

Adding a proxy server:

[[RssEmbed(url=http://127.0.0.1:8000/test/query?status=!closed&format=rss&order=priority,details=true,proxy=http://trac-hacks.org:3128)]]

Ticket details in RSS feed output are displayed also:

Ticket details in RSS feed output are not displayed:

Resolves #5488. Adds proxy support. I've tested with an anonymous proxy though as it is not enforced it is difficult to be sure. Syntax is proxy=http.proxy.company.com:3128
