Description

http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/syndication/#feed-class-reference

I noticed this when I tried to make feed from objects that do not have get_absolute_url method (short messages for frontpage that don't need to have their own pages). I wrote item_link so that it points to the page that displayed recent messages but it turned out, that the feed readers were displaying only the last message - both rss and atom. It turned out this was caused by the lack of unique id for each item in the feed.

The only way to make unique ids I could find in the docs was item_guid method (it returns obj.id in my case) but the docs clearly state that this method is only used in atom feeds. It is not. I tried it with RSS feed and it worked.

I've checked. The item_guid() is used by the Feed class just like it works for feed_type = Atom1Feed. So, not a feature just for Atom feeds like it said in the comment in the documentation.
Patch attached.
