I'll be the first to raise my torch and pitchfork against bloat, but
honestly, that's a drop in the bucket for a 32GB drive. If you were
installing to flash on an embedded device, you'd have a stronger
argument. ;)

This has always bothered me. Why put the code in if you're not going
to support it? Well, actually, NONE of MythTV is "supported". It's the
dev's code that they have shared so you can do with as you please with
zero expectations of merchantability or suitability for a purpose. If
by chance you happen to make a working DVR with it, great. If not,
don't mention it to the devs...
