Ticket #1743 (new feature)
OpenLayers.Layer.GeoRSS markers should correlate to original feed

This is a follow on to bug #1742.
Currently the OpenLayers.Layer.GeoRSS class uses the OpenLayers.Format.GeoRSS class to parse a GeoRSS XML document and produce an array of Vector features which contain "fid" and "link" properties. Without subclassing and duplicating a lot of code, there is no clean way of correlating a marker on the map with the original RSS feed.
The reason we want to do this is that we want to maintain the new/old/read icon each time the feed is reloaded. In the future this could also be used to more intelligently update the layer when a feed is reloaded such that only the necessary markers were removed thus avoiding flicker.
