See myth_rename.pl and optimize_mythdb.pl in contrib and
channel_icons.pl in contrib/master_iconmap.

And, if you'd like to get some practice using the bindings, feel free to
reimplement some of the other existing scripts--like mythencode.pl,
myth.find_orphans.pl, mythmaillog.pl, mythname.pl,
myth.rebuilddatabase.pl--using the bindings. :)  There's currently a lot
of redundant code in those scripts that is now implemented by the bindings.
