#2918: mythshutdown and mythbackend both use same setting for WakeupTimeFormat

 The recommended program for the backend to set wakeup time is
 mythshutdown. The recommended program for setting wakeup time in the NVRAM
 is nvram-wakeup.

 mythshutdown insists on ISO-8601 date format for it's parameter. (yyyy-MM-

 nvram-wakeup insists on time_t (seconds since epoch)

 Settings appear correct in the relevant dialogs because of hostname
 prevalence. Backend logs reveal that mythbackend is passing time_t to
 mythshutdown --setwakeup however.

 I have worked around this by setting "both" (local and NULL host) settings
 to ISO-8601 and the nvram-wakeup command to

 {{{date -d "`echo $time | sed "s/T/ /"`" +%s | xargs nvram-wakeup -A -s}}}

 (the sed is necessary because GNU date cannot parse ISO-8601 despite being
 able to generate it).

 The fact that you can have perfectly correct settings in the dialogs that
 do not work needs sorting out (perhaps make a second setting for the time
 format, or even just allow the user to define time formats to use with
 tokens like time_1$ time_2$, etc.
