Comment(by Joe Ripley <vitaminjoe at gmail.com>):

 I've decided to use the RSS feed after all.  It's layout has proven to be
 more consistent than the HTML layout.  Also, each XML file is only about
 4.5kB, which lessens the load on Environment Canada's servers as compared
 to the HTML files.

 This patch adds the XML urls to ENVCAN-Stations.xml as well as a (nearly)
 completely re-written ENVCANParser.pm module.  It also removes the need
 for the 'ENVCAN_icons' file.

 Still need to do more testing, but this should work for most people.
