Mike, I am a little puzzled as to why Mythweb goes anywhere near Mythtv as such. 
When I browse the Mythweb pages, all of what I am seeing is data from the 
database. Is the php in the apache server leveraging some code in the associated 
back end? I have for a while considered moving my mythtv database to another 
box, and running Mythweb on that box. If I can do that without having to install 
a dummy backend on it for the php to talk to, it obviously simplifies the 

What I'm getting at, perhaps, is that if Mythweb can be made to only talk to the 
database, then different privileges for different users becomes purely an Apache 
configuration issue and multi-user Myth modifications can be made a separate, 
perhaps lower-priority, issue.
