Long time no hear :)

At some point this cycle i'd like to have a discussion with you so we can
actually make this a lot easier for people to go back and forth if they want.
I'd like to sort out the bigger differences between the two so people can switch
KP->mythbuntu and mythbuntu->KP should they want to try one or the other without
having to lose too much.  Something along the lines of having a good way to
import a KP backup into us, and a mythbuntu backup into you :)

For posterity, perhaps we should grab some mythdora devs and get them to do the
same :)  I mean these projects are all about community efforts are they not?
