Right, I'm talking about running the "repair table" and "optimize table"
commands daily (or maybe just the optimize) from within Myth.
Why make the user put mysqlcheck or equivalent into a script when
we could do it ourselves?

Either that or we could put a one-script-does-all script in contrib,
but I prefer putting it directly in the housekeeper. :)

It makes one less thing the user has to setup to have an efficient
MythTV system.
