Sure. This might be alternative approach to mine and probably better one.
I see You are going route exactly the same like mine 
I think this is good idea.
It requires some effort - but as result I have system which is really 
stable and careless.
Also - after multiple months of usage & reading this list since years I 
realized I don't even remotely meet of 90% of problems mentioned by 
other ppl here.
Maybe this is luck maybe not. I believe it is not and it is result of 
basing my whole solution on fundamentals: Arch & Minimyth.

btw: I started with myth 7y ago - and Knoppmyth/LinHES was my distro of 
choice for 4-5y. It was/is perfect enabler for MythTV.
Cecil deserves really big thanx for his hard work !
Unfortunately  - as time goes - more and more packages I have to 
recompile to suit my needs (this wasn't problem).
Serious problem appear when I was forced to switch to newer kernel.
Dependencies simply killed me - so I do comparison: what cost more
1\resolve deps (mean a lot of rebuilds) ans stay on LinHES
2\DIY (initially also many rebuilds) but latter all under my control.
I risk 2nd option - and will never look back.
