No details I'm afraid. In the initial commits I'll only be removing a few of 
the fixups so little will change. I'll then review what remains and make 
further changes as necessary. I'm trying to keep the number of changes down 
so that it's more manageable and this certainly isn't a re-write of the xmltv 
parsing code.

I've added support for the cache capability and also the 
newer "preferredmethod" capability. I'll try to support new capabilities as 
they are announced.
