I believe what Isaac is saying is that it's not useful to have packaging 
scripts in trunk as they change too frequently. He is not saying that the 
script isn't useful, just that it would be better kept somewhere outside of 
SVN or at least the main branch.

This is actually something that we're looking at for all scripts in trunk, the 
intention is that scripts are stored elsewhere and made available for 
download separately, perhaps even automatically from within MythTV so that 
users can always get the working version without upgrading MythTV.
