Scott, this looks really nice. I've run into some limitations with
Mythexport now that I've started using it "in production" - The biggest one
being that there's a limited number of podcasts one can set up. Ideally, and
i know this may lead to podcast sprawl, I'd like to have the option to set
up a podcast for each series I transcode. That way I could subscribe to each
show individually. Is this something that MythPodcaster could do?

Secondly, I'm on Ubuntu and I see that much of this was written for Fedora.
Has anybody succesfully used this with Ubuntu and if so, any tips? I'll dive
into an install on one of my test systems tomorrow, time permitting, but
since I barely know what I'm doing I always look for a bit of help. :-)
