Just out of curiosity, since that was in changeset 23479, and I'm 
running 23565 from the Mythbuntu auto-builds, shouldn't I have 
mythllink.pl already?  I don't see it on my system anywhere.  I can 
download it if its not there.  Is there a Wiki page for it yet?  I see 
from the description that it can be used in the new event-driven 
mechanism of the backend (which I suppose I should start getting familar 
with ;-) ).
