I think he was saying what he would do for the application I proposed
which is a combined fe/be.

Seems that a TiVo might be a better way for her to go.  If the new
software was stable so that I could run one of these low power
Atom-Ion boards things would be different but I don't think I have
time to experiment and giving her development code doesn't seem like a
good idea.  Nobody has mentioned the backport so I assume it isn't an
option any more.  Perhaps some of the new fixes have left it in the
dust.  I see lots of posts with xxxx broke this or that.
