Now I understand why.

How is the best way to submit this.  Two patches, one for mythtv and one for

I thought the inputid was unique, will fix.  Is there anything else it should 
be sorted on?  How should p->shareable be handled?  It currently doesn't 
partially softpad p->shareable because it shouldn't need to.

It only does partial padding if there isn't room between programs for full 
padding.  Currently it proportionally allocates, with any seconds truncated 
to minutes in favour of softend.

My original idea was simple math but have no better idea.

I was going to do the themes as had previously.  Will I still put 'offset' in 
it own area?

Why 'Don't apply softpadding if SchedMoveHigher? isn't enabled. '  ?
