Yes I wrote a very hairy script to pull icons from the lyngsat logos webpage
based on some fuzzy matching of names from the database.. I am quite embarrased
at the code as I am pretty bad with perl, but if anyone wants to roll with this
it would be a great addition.. I suspect we might want to actually make it part
of mythfilldatabase so that if the icon isn't present it will try at least once
to get a new icon from that site.. There might be copyright issues with doing
that style of implimentation so it may be best to be left as an external script
for now.. Any thoughts?
