I haven't really looked into it, but I gather the Blogger API as
implemented by <http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/XMLRPC> does
something a bit like this, as the interface uses Atom to talk with the
system (see <http://code.google.com/apis/blogger/docs/2.0/developers_guide_protocol.html>
for more).

But that's XML-RPC communication where the external party is a client
and hence wouldn't get the blog/wiki to actively go and read an RSS
feed. You might be able to use one of the existing PmWiki feedreaders
to do your bidding, though.

It's a rather interesting idea, mind. How would you handle updated
entries that have already been written to PmWiki and possibly locally
