I had the same thought. We should look at making NVR an optional. I know Chris 
Pinkham was looking at it from a different perspective, by adding the option 
for different audio formats e.g. Ogg Vorbis, but I don't think that work is 
near to completion.

Framegrabbers are a dying breed for the most part, although there is no 
suggestion that we should stop supporting them just yet I don't see any harm 
in now making it an optional thing so packagers might be able to ship MythTV 
in official repos.
