Note, also, that there is a version of mythtv-backend.conf on the wiki, 
at http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Upstart_mythbackend_Configuration , but it 
seems to be very much out-of-date compared to the one you posted.  It 
would be wonderful if you could update the wiki page once Mythbuntu 
accepts your changes.

It seems that they may be using different start script configuration for 
0.24 and master (and I'm assuming the version on the wiki is for 
0.24-fixes).  If that's the case, you can add another {{Script}} section 
for the master version of the configuration, so that the page has two 
different files, and sufficient description that wiki readers and 
mythwikiscript.py users will know which to use.
