I've been using Planet as my personal aggregator for quite a while:

I've added some Javascript for navigating around with the keyboard, and
also manually collapsing old entries and storing their IDs in a cookie.
It works for me in Firefox and mostly works in Opera on the Nokia 770
Internet Tabled.  There are also unit tests for most of the Javascript

I made a small patch for Planet to get short and unique entry IDs to the
template, because browsers have a cookie size limit.  Tell me if you're
interested, and I'll make the code available somewhere.  (I'd like to
get that patch accepted into upstream, probably after the Dapper release
when Jeff hopefully will have some time to look at Planet patches.)
