So installing libmythtv-perl and libxml-simple-perl fix optimize-mythdb.pl.

However, for find_orphans,py I'm getting an error. If it's related to
libmyth-python(3) that doesn't exist on deb-multimedia.

Console log below:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/home/jim/./find_orphans.py", line 221, in <module>
   DB = MythDB()
 File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/MythTV/database.py", line 1276, in
   raise MythDBError(MythError.DB_CREDENTIALS)
MythTV.exceptions.MythDBError: Could not find database login credentials
