[mythtv] patch: playlist updates

If you point a host at a playlist using the settings table, you don't
need to make ANY changes to the schema. Multiple hosts can share one
or more playlists with zero overhead. Changes to a shared playlist which
occur on one node will be visible on another. Et cetera ad nauseum...
You don't get these behaviors if you use the existing schema or add a
hostname field to musicplaylist. It's no longer worth commenting on
the differences between my patched schema and the existing schema.
I really don't understand why I'm arguing the virtues of data structure
to a bunch of developers who know about 10,000 times more about software
design than I. You win, I'll maintain my own patches from now on.
