I think that would be cool. Let's raise the bar...
How about a MythGrocery module...
There would be a bar code scanner in the kitchen near the fridge (maybe
a CueCat). Whenever you finish a product you scan it. If Myth doesn't
know about it, you create an entry in the database for it (perhaps some
kind of audible beep could distinguish a known product from an unknown
product.) If Myth already knows about it, it adds that item to the
grocery list. The list would be accessible from a Myth menu and from
MythWeb so when you're about to leave work you know what to pick up at
the store on the way home.
Thinking further, I wonder if there are any kind of Internet lookups for
bar codes similar to CDs...
