Fair enough. As for myself, I have always heard of MythTV as "the ultimate
PVR." The PVR that trumps all others in terms of features and performance.
Never was mentioned that Myth was a "developers only" app. So to me that is
mainstream, not a developer to developer mantra. I can't tell you how many
times i've used my DirecTV DVR and said to myself "man, i wish this damn
thing could do X" which is almost always a feature in MythTV. So if its a
developer to developer approach that its meant for, then great, go with the
existing approach. But I do still feel that my structure thoughts have good
purpose even for the developer to developer community. Also, the whole
purpose of the project is so that people will use it... i've never heard any
developer on any project say "i wrote this because i wanted to create
something nobody will want to use except for myself."

Just my thoughts.
