Just wanted to let you know that some feeds, for instance tv_grab_dk,
does provide episode numbers and also original titles (less of an issue
in countries with English as their first language, but still; You might
watch a french film someday :) so:

If episode numbers are going into the database (yay!) could be also get
an 'origial title'/'native title' or something like that? I would like
to be able to have both subtitles, episode numbers and original titles
be possible at the same time (although all three are unlikely to occur
at once).

Since tv_grab_dk doesn't (or at least didn't with the last version I
fetched) get up subtitles I have alternately used that field for episode
numbers and original titles, which works well for me but *is* a
workaround that could just as well be handled by the above.

Maybe names along the lines of 'episode' and 'true_title'?

Here are some samples of the xmltv output I get:
