I would have thought people would complain about unnecessary overhead
that X takes to actually run. If that's a worry, well, X takes
basically almost no overhead. And you can easily run mythbackend
without X running as others have said anyway. Just go ahead and install
X and just don't start it, problem solved. Some distributions even give
you the option during install to say, don't automatically startx.
