Understood. From what I've noticed, mythtv-setup doesn't support it,
so it will always put it in ~/.mythtv/channels AND in the channel
table place the full /home/<user>/.mythtv/channels/  in front of the
icon file.

so when the user adds new icons they will have to link their user
channels folder to the location of their storage group, and remove the
folder info in the channel table. so a big *at your own risk*
