Twitterfilter: URL for unique tweets only, no retweets?

Twitterfilter: What URL will return original tweets with the #muckreads hashtag? (unique, filtering out all retweets, old style & new)

This URL gets rid of the old style "RT" retweets:
http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=+%23muckreads%20-%22RT%22
but it still gives me 1 (new style) retweet for every original tweet.
Presumably I'm overlooking the obvious; how do I get only the original tweets?

Using the advanced search, you can include tags, exclude RT, and don't check the "Include Retweets".

Hmm...yes, that works for the Q I asked, but not for the Q I meant (sorry); so to rephrase my Q -
how do I get this list of unique tweets in RSS format?
(i.e. "search.atom" will likely be in the URL)

I don't see anything in the "advanced" page to request a feed.

You probably can't get that RSS feed via a Twitter search function because "we no longer directly support RSS feeds on Twitter." The links there may help you do what you want to do. See also.
