[mythtv] MythGame in a mixed OS environment

I think best way is a extra column in the gameplayer in wich is set if it is aviable on all systems (*) or only on a special.

then in the setup screen of the player there has to be  a select box where i can select if the player is for all systems or only for the current.

this should be easy to integrate, i'm looking to do something like this tomorrow...

    That's how i have my roms setup. Same paths on all system. A
    resonable assumption as it is not hard to setup and why would you
    want it necessary to have local copies of roms. 

  The argument breaks down somewhat for non-ROM -based games ("PC Games", as MythGame likes to call them.)  I run frontends on Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X.  Not all of the games I have are available on all of those platforms.  Nor do the pathnames necessarily agree.  I could certainly set up shell scripts to hide the differences, but it would be a lot easier if I had host-specific game definitions.
