OPML, What is the point?

I have been reading a bit recently been reading about OPML. I have the following questions:

How can I use it?
What can I use it for?
What is it good for?

People who are talking about OPML

To Quote Robert:

OPML is the glue that COULD bring all these things together.

From what I have read, the article I quoted infers that in the future OPML will bring together pod casts, screen casts, photo-sharing and screen casts. I personally just can't see how it could; I don't get how it is supposed to work; I don't know who supports it or if they do support it, what they do with it.
