I'm not really sure we want to encourage this usage since it is frequently
mis-used. XMLTV grabbers work automatically with mythfilldatabase with
current Myth, they tell MythTV what they are capable of and what options are
I assume Robert has good reason for not letting mythbackend and
mythfilldatabase run themselves and that he knows how to efficiently use his
XMLTV grabber. However most users I've spoken to who use the cron scripts and
the args field in mythtv-setup do not.
I've no problem with users shooting themselves in the foot, but I don't see
why we should hand them the guns.
