 This is useful if you want to migrate content from another blog.
+Preventing a post from showing up in the atom feed
+Another variable that might be useful when migrating content from an old blog
+is ``dont_show_in_feed``. When this variable is set, it will prevent the post
+from showing up in the atom feed (so subscribers will not have an old article
+reappear in their reader as new).
