It would be nice if the Deletion log, and maybe some other logs, could have some sort of RSS feed as well. Not so much because users
are going to want to individually use them, but there may be ways to integrate this sort of thing into various forms of external software
(i.e., a little program that could keep track of newpages using its RSS feed and then whether or not they are deleted by the deletion feed).
Obviously just an enhancement, but if it isn't a difficult thing... might be worth throwing in.

Here is a first pass at implementing feeds for Special:Log. It is
modeled after the recent changes feeds, and output is cached
according to $wgFeedCacheTimeout. Following the RC example,
filtering is not allowed; all logs are returned together, and the
only allowed option is a limit.
One possible improvement that I didn't do would be to move the
caching into Feed.php, so that it isn't duplicated for every
page that needs cached feeds.
We should probably consolidate some more of the feed code -- feed type selection, limit handling, caching, etc are currently all kind of nastily duplicated, which complicates addition of new feeds for very similar things.
Changed component to "RecentChanges"
