Egress will prompt you for your username and password, then it can do
various things with your bloglines account.  Looking at
http://www.bloglines.com/services/api/, it doesn't appear you can do a
whole lot yet.  :)  But keep this in the back of your mind. 
Integrating with a big name tool would look cool for you, plus it
makes it easier for people to read their news no matter where they
are.  Use Bloglines when at a desktop computer and have the benefit of
a large screen, use pRSS when not.
