I'd like to generate an RSS feed from flat files in a directory.

A friend of mine has a fairly popular site that has articles he's written, and he creates each page from a template, by hand. He'd like to create an RSS feed, but since he doesn't use any automated CMS tools he needs something that can look at a directory, generate a summary, and create an RSS feed, with new entries receiving the timestamp of the file.
I know Blosxom will do this, but are there other tools that are better / different / shinier that you'd recommend? The requirements are: either CGI or PHP, no database, and a fairly simple install, although simple operation is more important.
