Agreed.  This is forbidden by terms of service on most (all?) Internet 
radio stations/services I've ever seen.  Because of that, I'd rather a 
user who decides to steal music from some service have to do all the 
work himself.

(Note that I realize it may be allowed on some non-radio/non-music type 
audio streams you may get from the Internet--like podcasts or whatever.  
I'm not trying to imply that you plan to steal music this way, but since 
there's a huge number of services for which it would allow doing so, a 
feature implemented in good faith would likely be used to steal music by 
a large number of users (some of whom may not even realize it's stealing 
since they may assume that if MythTV can do it, someone checked to make 
sure it's OK).
