This has been on my TODO list for a while, I plan on changing the current
"commfree" flag to "commmethod" and allowing setting of a commercial detection
method on a per-channel basis rather than just allowing detection ON/OFF
as is the case currently.

I'm also looking at some better logo detection right now, some tweaks that
some SageTV users made to my original commercial detection code.  So hopefully
I'll get that back-integrated soon and we'll get better detection all-around.
