When the user hovers his mouse above your RSS feed subscribe button, the script will display a long list of RSS readers that the visitors can use to directly subscribe to the feed. By simply clicking on the appropriate link, the user will quickly subscribe to the feed with the RSS reader he is currently using.
There's also a "What's this" link at the bottom of the list, but still many visitors will be put off by long list of RSS reader names they won't be able to understand, before even being motivated enough to click on the "What's this" link at the bottom.
But still, if you're targeting a more technical or internet oriented audiences, this just might do the trick.
The script is available from here: http://www.methodize.org/quicksub/

RSS Autodiscovery is a very nice feature that allows certain RSS Autodiscovery-enabled browsers to find a feed on your site and promptly offer the subscribe option to the visitor.
While most browsers still do not support this, FireFox for example does.
