	Well ... not to differ with Isaac, but there is one subtlety here. I've been 
working on MythWeb (slowly, but it is coming). One of the stated goals of 
that project is to build a set of basic services (proably web services on 
port 80) that will use a simple XML-schema to do things like get listings, 
flag a program for recording, etc. Don't get your hopes up though ... a 1.0 
of the current mythWeb is still some distance away, and only after that will 
I start seriously thinking about re-engineering the basic functionality as a 
set of core services.
