It can parse an RSS feed or a web page to get links. See the parse_index method.

It seems like the only input I really need is a URL. Even if the plugin simply pops up a dialog box asking for it and then processes from there, I should be able to do the rest automatically. Is there a simple way to get user input?
As I posted, the simplest is to edit the recipe directly to add the URL. Second easiest is to pretent the URL is a username or password, tell the recipe it needs authentication, then pass in the input through one of the user/pass boxes that appears. Finally, you can write an interface. You can do anything you can do in Python. There's a thread on user input.
