When I look at my old production system that was built  from PPA with 
v29 and upgraded to v30 it has the 2 scripts for mythtv-setup and 
mythfrontend.  On a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 system only mythfrontend now has 
a script. It seems that the mythtv-setup script has been eliminated.

Maybe with things moving to systemd everywhere the scripts will not be 
used at all in the future??

Clearly on the system I built from source there are no scripts and 
mythfrontend works just fine.
