Comment(by Bill <level42 at sympatico.ca>):

 There are a few minor issues with this patch that I am working on fixing.
 The main one is that the cast order is not always displayed in "first
 billed" order.  I'm using the types defined in dbaccess.cpp
 (SingleValueImp and MultiValueImp) and I'm finding that sometimes if even
 the data is inserted in the database in the first billed order, the
 fill_from_db function of MultiValueImp may not retrieve in the same order
 it was inserted.  Still debugging this, but I may need to change to not
 use MultiValueImp and directly access the database.  Besides MultiValueImp
 and SingleValueImp load the entire table into memory for all videos which
 could be quite sizeable for the cast data unlike the Genre or Country

 There's also seems to be an issue where only 14 of the 15 cast members
 listed on imdb are picked up (the imdb.pl script does get all of them).
 As the code is the same for Genre and Country this issue may also affect
 these also.

 Hope to have an update this weekend.
