Unfortunately not for 0.25 since we're in a feature freeze now and this isn't
technically a bugfix.

If you compile from source, you can uncomment those lines yourself.  To
fix the issue that caused the revert commit, you should be able to uncomment
and add the following before each of the SendSystemEvent lines that are
commented out.

if (QCoreApplication::applicationName() == MYTH_APPNAME_MYTHFRONTEND)

That should cause the system events to only get sent for mythfrontend.  The
reason for the commit revert was that the system events were firing during
mythtv-setup before we even had a DB connection.  I'll reopen the ticket and
reference this test fix in it.  Once we cut 0.25 and release, we can get
something like this back into master.  Sorry I didn't think of this solution
before the freeze.
