 This ticket is to track the progress of moving the video scanner into the

 Initial patch does this with a new mythproto command, SCAN_VIDEOS.
 Currently, only the scanning and insertion into the database done, I'll
 want to finish the work of also having metadata grabbing done there
 (possibly with a discrete proto command as well?) before committing.

 As it stands, the mythbackend --scanvideos command isn't working quite
 right yet, but firing off a SCAN_VIDEOS message to the backend with the
 bindings seems to work nicely.

 When all is said and done, we can probably use this to replace the uPnP
 media scanner.
