The XMLTV format supports an <episode-num> field, and within that the 
"xmltv_ns" system format, using three fields, separated by periods, 
defining the season, episode, and part numbers.  Any work towards 
populating the new season and episode fields directly from the guide 
data should be done through processing of that field.  Any attempt to 
parse season and episode number from other formats such as "onscreen" or 
"dd_progid", or other fields like subtitle, will be prone to error.
