The use of 'internal' in that case didn't mean internal to the
mythbackend process, but internal to MythTV in general. As it stands,
it is not a patch that can be applied to MythTV. As an external script,
we've been trying to clean out contrib anyway, and aren't adding new
stuff to it. That leaves it as a proof of concept, sitting there as a
feature request for someone else to implement, whether in mythbackend,
mythcommflag, or some new myth- application. The author seemed content
leaving it as the external script, and as a matter of principle, we
don't allow feature requests on trac.
