Even if it's applied immediately, it likely won't go to -fixes, meaning
it won't be available "to the general public" until the 0.22 release.
That means if you want to write a client that's usable by 0.21(-fixes)
users, you'd have to write it to work with the "old" approach (and
support the "new" approach once available). If you're writing a client
for yourself, you can simply apply the patch to your own tree (though I
haven't tried lately, it should apply cleanly to either -fixes or trunk).
It is possible that the devs may include it in -fixes under a loose
definition of the word "fix" (since it seems that so far no clients have
begun heavily using MythXML's GetProgramGuide), but even then, if you
want to support 0.21 users, you may want to support the old approach so
you don't have to tell them they need SVN revision X or higher (or so
you don't have to respond to a bunch of "it doesn't work--I don't see
any shows listed" questions about your client).

I'm pretty sure it's just a time thing. There are somewhere around 600
open tickets, right now, after all.
Also, if you send an iPhone (based on your link to
http://trac2.assembla.com/mymote ) to Greg Estabrooks (the current owner
of the ticket), he may actually find this ticket to be higher priority
once he receives it. :)
