Update subscriptions which have expired by virtue of being ignored for five or more days

Obligatory warning: This script has been designated as an obsoleted "Retro Script". There is no guarantee that it will function as described with modern versions of iTunes and/or macOS. If used in its current form it may not work at all without modification and, at worst, it may corrupt or destroy data.

iTunes will stop updating a podcast if you have not listened to at least one of its episodes in five days. This script will batch-update every podcast subscription so you don't have to manually update each one individually.

I have posted instructions on how to create a launchd agent to run this script automatically and invisibly in the background to ensure that your Podcasts are always updated.

Possible iTunes bug (July 17, 2014): Looks like the iTunes AppleScript command updatePodcast command is broken as of iTunes 11.
