[mythtv] MythGame in a mixed OS environment

Will MythGame understand which emulators/roms are available for each  
frontend? My main frontend is linux, but i also have a OSX frontend  
that i use often enough. It brings up an interesting situation in  
that some roms can be used on both frontends, like mame or GameBoy,  
while others will only work on one or the other frontend. It would  
make sense to only display the roms that are playable on the  
particular frontend you are using at the time.

Not sure how this would work behind the scenes. Perhaps the emulator  
type could be used? or is there an easier way to link the emulator/ 
roms to the frontend. It would be overkill to duplicate the rom info  
in the database, i'm thinkin. Maybe just an extra field that  
coordinates things.

Thanks for all the coding. Looking forward to testing the commit that  
adds meta data collection capabilities.
