[mythtv] [PATCH] abstract IMDB queries into external scripts

Hopefully this patch will get applied before the next version.  It's
dependent on me wringing out all the bugs and submitting something that
can easily be patched and verified working by one of the persons with
CVS access.  Currently I'm waiting on feedback from Isaac regarding the
problem he had with it (Isaac, can you run mythfrontend -v and also add
a '-d' param to your script cmdlines and send me the output?).

I already know of a few problems that need fixing.  Apparently I left
some script paths hard coded instead of using the PREFIX def.  Also
there is an undesirable effect if you keep selecting a list entry
without letting it finish looking up your first selection.

Your idea will be easy for me to implement... in fact, I meant to all
along, but forgot to tie this in.  I need to add a cmdline option to
imdb.pl that takes the country.  I suppose it would be best if this
could be ultimately a setting in the database in case anything else
needs it, but until then it will just be something that non US users can
put in their movie lookup script commandline manually.
