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...
