[uf-discuss] hatom parsing question

The AUMFP doesn't match up with the hAtom spec at this second because 
we've done quite a bit of changing in terminology over the last 5 weeks 
and I haven't updated the code base. This is what's causing the problem 
you're seeing there.

I'll put on my list of to-dos to get this to where the spec is and I 
suspect your problem will go away.

Regards, etc...
