A couple of the things I want to do for 0.21 will make setup a little easier 
for some. (xmltv mainly, possibly lirc) The SoC settings work should also 

The greatest problems with setting up myth come not from myth at all, but the 
external factors like drivers and applications such as xmltv, lirc, qt, mysql 
etc There are also a number of people who don't read the manual.

Setup is also complicated by users - for every feature that is added to MythTV 
there will be a number of people who want the ability to turn it on/off, 
inevitably this means more settings screens and the potential for things to 
be set up in a broken manner.
