For what it's worth, you can't make progress if you take one step 
forward and one step backward.

Saying to revert the commit is saying it has absolutely no value and is 
completely wrong and that MythTV was--and will be--better off without 
any part of the changes.  Having seen Mark's work in general, I find 
that hard to believe--hard enough to believe that I would expect someone 
who understands exactly what's wrong with the current code would be able 
to explain exactly why it must be reverted and why there is no possible 
way to make MythTV work without reverting it, if that truly is the 
case.  However, since cleaning up compiler warnings has value, I would 
expect that it's possible to fix the code to work without compiler 
warnings, since I've never seen a problem that couldn't be solved 
without compiler warnings.

Just my $0.02.
