RSS timeouts?

So, I've got a block on my site (pardon the mess, I just upgraded from 1.2.5 to 1.3.5) that lists the songs playing from a friend's web radio. The problem is that, as GL tends to cache a RSS block for at least 5 minutes (I think), it's almost always out of date.

Said friend wrote a quick hack (3 lines changed and 1 column added to the DCool to allow all the block timeouts to be customizable with a default value. It is by no means pretty to maintain (have to manually edit the database), but it works. Is this something that you GL developers want?

All times are EDT. The time is now 05:24 am.
