Well, *we're* flacking it.  :-)

This sort of infrastructural stuff is what I live for (not really being
a coder, and given the dearth of seats for designer/analysts amongst
open source projects :-); I'm going to be taking a serious swing at
trying to get it all marching in at least the right general direction,
if not in step.

mythtv.org; was there a specific thing you weren't happy about?
