 There is no external command. It's being done by MythGame itself.

 The code in 0.18 pulls the SnesRomLocation value , and does a non 
recursive search for .zip,smc,sfc,fig,1,2 files which are passed to 
IsSnesRom() which unzips if needed and tries to verify some of the
rom file headers to make sure it's a valid SNES rom.

 Remember it's not a recursive search, so if the snes roms are actually 
in a subdirectory then they wont be found.

 SVN does proper recursive searching and is a lot more flexible so most of
the 0.18 process has changed internally.
