Oi! I firsted it, you insensitive clod!

Anyway, one thing I wasn't aware of before is that with 0.16 I can now turn 
off commflag on a per-channel basis with the channel editor in mythsetup. 
I've always just installed straight over the top before, and so didn't see 
the option.

Just to repeat my other request in case it catches some enthusiastic coders 
eye, I'd also like to be able to turn commflag rules on or off on a channel 
bassi as well; something like this table, which will no doubt come out very 

Channel Blank frames    Scene changes   Extra loud bits Splash screen
                                                 with gaps       example

Ch1             Y               Y               N 
Ch2             N               N               Y               N
Ch3             Y               Y               Y 

etc etc, since in the UK at least I've found different combinations of 
commflaging work better than others, and I think it'd be a good idea to 
make the commflag modular so that commflag plugins are easy to make and 

But that's just me... as I say, IANACPPC...
