Where in the world is the RSS Viewer Web Part

I needed to put an RSS Viewer web part on a page but could not find it.  I opened the feature folder and did a search for rssviewer to see if anything came back.

I am a minimalist when it comes to SharePoint and would rather not activate features that are not being used.  This web part becomes available when you activate the Office SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection features Site Collection feature (I needed it available for all sites).  This feature actually activates a lot of features, too many too mention, but if you need the RSS viewer web part you need to activate this feature or its Site Feature counterpart (for a single site only), the Office SharePoint Server Standard Site features feature.

These features are not activated by default, which is very pleasing to me. :)

Now if I could just get it to work through a proxy server!  Ideas welcome!

[EDIT] - Well I actually looked a little harder and found this post by Adam Hems.

[EDIT] - That post would probably work if the proxy server did not require authentication (mine does); that said, ideas welcome!

I would also like clarification on how to add the RSS Viewer Web Part. I have recently upgraded from WSSv2 to WSSv3. The old RSS web part generator at sharepointrss.com doesn't seem to want to work with our proxy. Can you please clarify?
