I looked at this about a year ago, and basically the way the settings
are stored requires access to the database, and myth, last I checked,
uses QT to do all that. So basically, as far as I know anyway, if
you have QT you have X. It would be possible to write a text mode
configuration program that access mysql directly but as of right now I
will concentrate my work on getting the new frontend config working.
