[mythtv-users] Channel groups

It occurred to me tonight that a good number of mythtv users probably 
have access to a _lot_ of TV channels (duh).

With the DVB radio patch, I now have access to some more.

I'm currently working on integrating my cable box into mythtv. When 
that's done I'll have even more channels (like about 200 extra).  Okay - 
most of them are _dirge_ but a good few have shows I like to see 

It's going to be tricky to find things to record & navigate through all 
of these lists of channels, so am I alone in thinking that it'd be 
really nice if mythtv allowed us to group channels into categories?

TV - breaking down into subcategories like 'entertainment', 'news' , 
'music'.. yada yada yada.

Radio (just to seperate it from TV so it's easier to tell which is which 
in the listings).

Recordings can be grouped, so why not channels?

I'm not in the habit of making feature requests, but I think this one 
would make poly-channel setups easier to live with.  I know it's no 
trivial task, so I'll understand if a loud 'no' is yelled in my 
direction ;-)

Any thoughts?
