Most likely this provides just a "design" which can be adapted for the
XMLTV-based grabbers.

This is probably the best approach, because--as Nick mentioned--it
benefits even people who don't use Myth.

However, in the interim, see Robert Eden's posts earlier in the
(original) thread: 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/283050#283050 and
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/283058#283058 .  The
down side of this approach is that configuration and scripting of the
caching support is up to you.  Once integrated into the grabber, it
would be available for all.
