 Like mdean, I too appreciate the hard work you've done.  mythrename has
 been removed from trunk and won't be in .23 either.  As mentioned, we are
 working to move the scripts into the user ecosystem and out of our support
 structure.  It's no slight intended towards your work, but merely an
 indication of the direction we are taking.  We have closed similar tickets
 and will probably be doing so with others in the future.

 Some things you should consider as you continue to work on the script on
 your own:

 * It should use one of the sets of bindings, not just be a series of bash
 scripts.  The bindings will track the many forthcoming database changes
 (which will break this script completely as soon as they are implemented)
 * This script will not work properly in many non-english locales because
 of character set issues.
 * This script will not work properly with EIT-provided listings and many
 non-english listings sources because of programid assumptions you make
 that are unique to Schedules Direct/TMS.
 * This script is incompatible with non-linux setups.
 * There are a whole set of TMDB and TVDB bindings that you can take
 advantage of in the Myth bindings rather than using sed to parse XML (a
 painful exercise in BASH)
