Right.  There's some benefit to that, I'm just not sure if it's worth the 
extra time those queries would then take, especially if the frontend were 
made to use 'em.

Although, one _could_ also argue that other projects should just use 
libmyth/libmythtv instead of reimplementing things from scratch, too.  
Granted, the requirements are slightly heavy for tiny systems, but there's a 
reason that those things are in libraries in the first place.
