Hi Raymond,

Thanks for your reply, and for your work on adding the specific warning 
text for "mythshutdown -l".

As a user, I agree that consistency between applications is important, 
but I disagree that this is the *only* thing that makes sense, 
overriding all other concerns. I think that consistency over time, 
between versions, is also very important. The question is, which is more 
important? You obviously have your view and I have mine.

For what it's worth, I have started a thread on the users list 
(http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/517609) to see what 
other users think. I am interested to see the responses, although I know 
this isn't a democracy.
