Fair enough.  How do you handle incremental changes to the database schema?

No, I copied it, but it's not mine.  So rather than mistakenly submit a
patch that pisses off other developers, I'd like to automate away such
issues to our mutual benefit.  You wouldn't have such a problem with
this if you supplied some sort of document (ideally indent.pro) that
defines the style you desire.

It happens every time I start/stop mythmusic, and the playlist editing
happens several times more frequently than that.  I'm trying to improve
the speed of the interface, since I find it's currently rather sluggish.

Under what circumstances will you accept patches to improve efficiency?
