I don't need this but a couple suggested conveniences. First, if 
you change the 'program' table, you need to tell the scheduler
to look for matching programs once again. Otherwise, it won't know
that there are new listings that may match existing rules. Also,
the Setup->General page for "Mythfilldatabase" asks for a path
to a command. This, of course, could be a wrapper script to do any
daily tasks along with mfdb. For example:

# mythfillrssp: mfdb plus Rogers Digital
mythbackend --resched
