Cool. Nice use of an eval to check module dependency.
And you even added some Mac OS X specific homedir stuff!


1) I don't think it is worth while doing
a UI to select from multiple backends.
Just tell them to run mythfrontend
(which will save a config.xml)

2) config.xml might contain a pre-selected
backend, and PIN, but the host details may
have changed since they were saved in config.xml.
Is it possible to use Net::UPnP::ControlPoint
to search for a particular device USN?

3) The hostname override doesn't seem to be
used by any of the contrib scripts, but it
could be, if someone ever wrote a script
that did any local host housekeeping?

4) This will now fail to work on machines
which still/only have valid mysql.txt files.
Not a huge problem, because most users
will have run mythback/frontend first,
but some users will complain. e.g.

"It used to work, and mythfrontend works,
  but myth*.pl failed with some message
  about copying a working config.xml.
  Oh, hang on, it works now. What is happening?"
