HUGE code structure changes...  you could pick at it, but the patch 
itself definitely wouldn't apply.

I use it for feature requests..  maybe the other devs don't, but that's 
where people tend to put them, and it's one of the only places to put 
info that is guaranteed to be looked at.

Please check svn before submitting info about stuff like that. SO much 
has changed in svn that much of this is probably irrelevant.

in svn, myth has completely changed how it handles manual recordings... 
  Pretty sure this is a moot point now.
