This sounds exactly like what I wanted.

I am now sooooo confused it's not funny.

First I get told that the "right" way to save a changed setting is to

	ThemeSelector theme;

Then I find that this isn't available in mythfrontend and I'll have to
make it available, which then leads to a can of worms because of
everything else that needs to be included.

Along the way I discover SetSettings and AppearanceSettings.save and
this seems that is should do what I want, I'm advised that it should
work but it doesn't.

Then I'm told that it doesn't do what I want, ok fair enough.

So my question is, Is there a function that I can use _NOW_ to write a
setting to the db from within mythfrontend, if not it would seem to me
that these changes are useful.

If there is no way to do what I want, I'll just stick with my db.exec,
but if so please tell me, I hate the feeling of chasing my tail here.
