I'm not assuming they'll never be used, just that they won't be in the
couple of weeks it'll take me to cut over to a new MythTV version
:-)  Perhaps a good modification would be to flag if the new digits aren't
00 and email a warning to check it out.

This was all about quick&dirty with the least touching of anything else
(though I got carried away a bit with the next suggested time wait code).
