[mythtv] [PATCH] Wythweb2 - Mythvideo

I haven't gotten around to this yet, but I propose that the index page at
least be accessible without Mythbackend.  Add options for MythTV, Video and
Music, add maintenance pages for accessing settings table in the database
from a list, etc.  There are obviously a million things that can be done to
a webapp, is there a general todo for Mythweb already other than the README?
I can help on this immediately as I have a hell of alot more
soap/xml/php/sql experience (many years) than c++ (about 3 weeks). I didn't
want all the direct backend access people to hate the extra step.  Of course
they could just go bookmark the next page down and bypass the index page.

I am already implementing a pseudo stored procedure library my storing my
commonly used queuries in the settings table.  Here is one I run
date=update videometadata set showlevel=0 where not FIND_IN_SET(right

I would like to propose that we use either the settings table as a query
repository so we can update it easily, or make a new table to store them.
but some common naming scheme like I am using would be appropriate.
