Thanks Martin and Wichert! Now that I know *how* to do it, the question 
is: *should* I? Thus I am curious about why replacing a tool would be 

I planned on replacing the portal_syndication tool to remove the 
frequency settings (because all feeds will be updated immediately upon 
publishing an item) and to add some other settings. I will be replacing 
all the useful functionality of the legacy syndication code, so that 
isn't a reason to keep the tool around (some third-party product might 
have a dependency, but I don't know...). If I just get rid of the legacy 
portal_syndication tool, where do I keep my site-wide settings? In a z3 
utility with a configlet UI?
