I don't see the problem as Linux, I see the problem as DRM.

But in any case I think the Myth developers would prefer to work on Myth, not 
something proprietary that makes money for others.

Open Source developers do what they do for their own reasons, which do not 
usually include proprietary solutions.

Granted it would enhance Myth, but if we ever see a Netflix solution for Myth 
it would be by calling some external program, not integrated into Myth itself. 
Purely a personal opinion of course.
