UPDATE: "Houston, we have a problem!" Moving feeds in Feedburner.
UPDATE: to cut the long story short iTunes /Mac app support basically told me I was 'out of luck'. I did a bit more thinking. My head must have been exceptionally clear today, because I came up with a solution!

That reminds me - I can always use a review or two;)
