About a year ago I volunteered to write the code to get mythvideo to  
use storage groups. I've been done for ages but I'm way back at svn  
15873 and haven't had time to bring things up to current svn until  
recently. I really want to get current so hopefully I'll have  
something soon. On the other hand I've said that before...

One incompatibility I notice is Greg defines a single storage group  
for all videos while I allow any number of groups like we have for TV  
shows. My reason was to avoid problems when converting existing  
databases where people have several video folders but maybe it's more  
flexibility than people need?
