 The attached patch allows one to change the logfile used by a running
 mythbackend process.  It basically allows one to keep mythbackend running
 for days / weeks / months, and roll the logfile as needed.  For example, I
 have a script that does this at midnight so I get a new log for each day.

 This is similar to the functionality in #6190, it works as follows:

 mythbackend --setlogfile "log.file.name"
 is similar to starting
 mythbackend --logfile "log.file.name"
 but will signal the currently running mythbackend instance to change it's
 log file.
