News feed enhancements for multiple products

Description

To provide future installation packages such as that in #2729 that are incompatible with the current in-net update i2pupdate.su3, but still need some form of either auto-update or at least auto-notification and download (presumably in-net), these products would either need their own news feed or would need enhancements to the current feed format.

Separate feeds may be a maintenance headache as they'd have to be generated separately for each release. To support multiple products in the same feed, we'd need to enhance the XML schema. This may get complex if we want to have certain news items be product-specific, for example an announcement of 0.9.45-1 for Windows only.

We may wish to have sub-feeds for certain platfoms win/mac/linux even if the update itself is theoretically compatible for all, to deliver a fix only to certain users.

Version numbering may be slightly different so each product line knows when to update. See #2729 comment 4.

Not clear what the best plan is.
