Even if there were a multi-user MythWeb patch available--without MythTV
multi-user support--it may help convince others to put some effort into
multi-user MythTV.  MythWeb can always be changed to use the "future"
MythTV multi-user support once it's available.

But, if you can find a workaround with acceptable annoyances, that's
probably a lot easier.
