If you intend to distribute this grabber then your best course would be to 
create an XMLTV grabber adhering to the xmltv specification. 

This means it supports the baseline and manualconfig capabilities. It will 
then be detected when you run mythtv-setup and will be run automatically run 
daily, with the correct options by mythbackend (using mythfilldatabase).
