I can't really argue against this, yet I'm still inclined to leave it 
disabled. This only affects users in the UK, the canned searches have 
probably never worked for non-english speaking countries.

The 'proper fix' is probably pretty simple and I'll make an effort to look at 
it over the coming week.

Packagers shouldn't be using HEAD. The change in question was made after 0.20 
and therefore shouldn't affect anyone using the stable version of mythtv.
