Why is it that daily housekeeping is not done by the housekeeper
in the backend, but rather by mythfilldatabase, whose purpose
you would think is to fill the database with program data?

Those of us who use over the air EIT exclusively don't need
mythfilldatabase to populate the program data, so requiring
it for housekeeping is a little obscure....
