Well, the only data feedburner has to work with are the headers being sent; so start by sending the same headers as Firefox and trim. Probably it's keying on the user agent, as that would be the maximally stupid thing to do.

But...but...but...that's why I'm asking lazyweb! Because I'm lazy!

Yup, user agent would really be maximally stupid. It would mean that any time someone invents a new feedreader, FeedBurner either has to know about it, or the feedreader has to know about FeedBurner urls. Seems unlikely, but who knows.

If Professor Lazyweb doesn't rescue me, I'll try fiddling with headers tomorrow...

Yup. I was hoping it would be the "Accept:" header, but that doesn't seem to be working (though I'm not totally sure I'm setting the header the right way--it was just a 5-minute test). I'll try user-agent next.
