[mythtv-users] Plugin Suggestion

This may be the wrong mailing list for this or a suggestion that has already
been made, but I'll post it anyway.
Last night I had the desire to order pizza but didn't want to pick up a
phone. I visited papajohns.com from mythbrowser, only to find it was a *
.xinitrc start opera with evilwm instead of mythtv for the time being, but
the idea suddenly occurred to me. We have all seen the perl script
"pizza-party" which allows you to order from dominos with your account
information on their website. What if somebody (and I'm no CGI/Perl wiz,
this is why I'm suggesting it) wrote a mythplugin which allowed you to
configure it to a specific account for different pizza places? There is
currently one which displays movie times in a similar manner. This script
should allow you to do everything the webpages do (including using a payment
standard other than the default one). Anyway, this is just a suggestion.
If nobody wants to take up the challenge I may take it on in the future when
I have time to learn perl and CGI POST methods.
