I'm currently running 0.18-r2 from the regular portage tree.  I also 
have MythDVD, MythGallery, MythWeather, MythMusic, MythWeb, & 
MythStreamTV plugins installed.  I'd like to try SVN as I've read about 
lots of nice features.  Do I need to unemerge the old before emerging 
your mythtv-svn?  Would you please provide a brief list of steps for 
this noob?  I'd really appreciate it as I do not want to break my system 
by doing something stupid.
