No.  That would be /very/ bad.  The problem now is that mythfilldatabase 
makes 2 separate requests--one to get each of today and +13.  (And, in 
truth, it can make additional requests to get +12 and +11 and ... if it 
detects significant holes in the listings.)  Using --refresh-all makes 
/13/ requests (+1 through +13) and adding --refresh-today adds a 14th 

AIUI, Robert has said that pulling all the data most likely woudn't be a 
problem (more testing still required, so please bear with us :) if it 
was done as a single request for all 14 days of listings.  To handle 
this properly and reliably on all our users' systems, we need some 
changes to the code and, possibly, to the MythTV database schema.  We're 
planning these changes, but they will take some time.
