A qualified yes, a number of people don't use the DB to store information on
their videos. It is a single patch away from being a yes.

Many people have trouble building from svn, some subset of them send an
e-mail to the -users list describing their problem. Simply saying you cannot
is not going to solve the problem.

At this point the number of changes between svn trunk and 0.20-fixes is
small (for MythVideo). If you were to make a patch for 0.20-fixes, for
example, that let you set how the sort key is generated, it would probably
apply to trunk. Supposing it didn't, you could still submit a ticket (you
would not be the only one who doesn't make a proper patch). I've yet to
reject a ticket just because it was against 0.20-fixes (though I don't make
them a priority).
