OK, it sounds great - but my 0.23.1 box doesn't have it and my 0.24 el5 
box has python 2.4 and reports 'invalid syntax' as below:

[mythtv at cpc1-clif1-0-0-cust573 ~]$ mythwikiscripts
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/mythwikiscripts", line 3, in ?
     from MythTV.wikiscripts import *
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MythTV/__init__.py", line 57, in ?
   File "<string>", line 4, in ?
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MythTV/logging.py", line 202
     with self._lock:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

There seems to be a locking problem under el5 anyway, and I suppose that 
may be related to this.  I need to 'enable sloppy lock' for mythfrontend 
to run.
