The use of 'internal' in that case didn't mean internal to the 
mythbackend process, but internal to MythTV in general.  As it stands, 
it is not a patch that can be applied to MythTV.  As an external script, 
we've been trying to clean out contrib anyway, and aren't adding new 
stuff to it.  That leaves it as a proof of concept, sitting there as a 
feature request for someone else to implement, whether in mythbackend, 
mythcommflag, or some new myth- application.  The author seemed content 
leaving it as the external script, and as a matter of principle, we 
don't allow feature requests on trac.
