This seems to me like a useful low-impact hook for authors of Feed subclasses...
I was writing one today and wished I had such a hook.
It would be intentionally similar to the get_context_data hook on class-based views.
Usage would look like:
class MyFeed(Feed): def get_context_data(**kwargs): context = super(MyFeed, self).get_context_data(**kwargs) context['foo'] = settings.FOO context['more_things'] = app.models.Things.objects.filter(...) return context
The description_template and title_template could then make use of the extra context variables.
Attaching a patch; will write tests if this seems worthwhile.
