Loading torrents via RSS feed

The same principle as with loading torrents via file and magnet link can be applied to the RSS feed.

After we paste RSS feed URL, we can choose if we want to download all items in the feed automatically, or we only need a list of torrents fetched via that RSS feed and we can individually select torrents that we want to download.
