It's worth pointing out that while a lot of those features aren't needed,
they can still be useful. For example, because Myth uses X I can use VNC to
control my Myth system from another machine. This is particularly useful if
I want to mess about with settings, edit meta data for videos or music, and
even just for using MythMusic.
