 * Checks to see if all of the feed url in $check_urls are cached.
 * If $check_urls is empty, look for the rss feed url found in the dashboard
 * widget options of $widget_id. If cached, call $callback, a function that
 * echoes out output for this widget. If not cache, echo a "Loading..." stub
 * which is later replaced by Ajax call (see top of /wp-admin/index.php)
 * @since 2.5.0
 * @since 5.3.0 Formalized the existing and already documented `...$args` parameter
 *              by adding it to the function signature.
 * @param string   $widget_id  The widget ID.
 * @param callable $callback   The callback function used to display each feed.
 * @param array    $check_urls RSS feeds.
 * @param mixed    ...$args    Optional additional parameters to pass to the callback function.
 * @return bool True on success, false on failure.
