I don't follow the development of mythtv too closely, but wouldn't  
this be the type of fix that would be intended for the -fixes branch?  
If not, what types of fixes are meant for that branch.

I'm not writing a normal client. In fact, I don't use the mythtv  
protocol at all. The reason I use the MythXML interface is because it  
does not require any authentication or server setup (compared to  
looking it up in the mysql db) and it does not require a mythtv  
protocol match.
