Okay, I finally bit the bullet and tried Luke Hutteman's SharpReader.  Very cool.  (For an RSS aggregator, that is...)  It does preserve the "look" of posts; I was pleasantly surprised to find that with no changes Critical Section looked great.  Loading a post even loads the frameset.  If you are at all inclined to mess around with an aggregator, check this one out...
