Is there a reason why a check for missing tables (and their creation
if found to be missing) was not the first schema update once MythVideo
and MythDVD were integrated. I'm sure Michael will not be the last
user to have used one or the other plugin exclusively in the past.
Is it possible to retrospectively alter the MythVideo schema for 1016
to "CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS..." first, so that we check for any
missing tables and create them instead of having the upgrade fail?
