Mmmm, deafening silence for a while :-(

I'm not sure if something is expected from me, marketing wise I mean.
But I'm an engineer and not the best marketing type in town ;-)

What my patch does is combining the the data gathering (tree-building)
of the various mythvideo views. Something jdonovan started to do
already for all views except for the treeview. The special thing of the
current input module for the videotree is that it also supports imported
data from the filesystem (or removable media). My patch allows to other
views (like gallery) to use that data too...
My patch does not (yet) permit passing around of the tree. It has to be
re-read when switching views, but I was planning to do something with
this as the next step.
