I've used Eskil's patch on and off since I've started using Myth. I
usually have to wait for him to update and then compile a build
closely after what he used to update the patch. When I do this it's
worked fine. It's not a perfect patch, there is definitely room for
improvement on getting options for stream caching, etc. and for
adding/editing streams, but the basics of it work quite well. Of
course all this can be resolved once the patch is part of the code in

I'd be a big fan of this getting merged as well.
