I didn't contribute a single line of code to Windows ME, either.  I suppose
I'm not qualified to suggest it could have been better than it was?

The devs that participate on the mailing lists tend to respond to any
request or suggestion with "show us the patch," yet all too often, when
someone like Justin suggests that they are working on a patch, those same
devs offer nothing but blind defense for the staus quo.

if the devs are primarily concerned with how well MythTV works for them,
fine.  They have no obligation to make it better for everyone else.  Don't
treat me like an ungrateful heretic for suggesting it could be a lot better,
though.  It's just a stupid obvious fact of life.
