Using Apex to retrieve RSS Feeds

I was rather glad to see a question come up on the the Salesforce StackExchange about how to load data from RSS into custom objects, as it was one of the few times that I could offer a complete solution without setting aside a couple hours to test out some new code (not that I mind doing that, any good excuse to write some Apex for a few hours...). As it happens, I was already doing this internally to help our team of crack evangelists track blog posts.
