But that's my point -- if you use the xmltv icon grabber you don't have
a manual process!  The xmltv code will grab all the icons for your
lineup directly.  No manual intervention required.

Why go through all the extra work to manually map WFXT -> FOX and then
FOX -> foxicon when xmltv can perform the direct mapping of WFXT ->
foxicon for you, automatically?

This all still seems like a lot of extra work for very little gain.
