Hi Lucas,

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.
