That sounds like a great addition, however the housekeeper it wouldn't seem 
possible to eliminate any settings that way. The 'suggested runtime' setting 
is populated by the grabber for SD and may soon also be provided by some XMLTV 

If you meant the 'EnableMythFill' setting, well I'd be all for eliminating 
that but some people still insist on running mythfilldatabase manually or from 
a cron job. Not that I have a problem with users who have a genuinely good 
reason to do so, most don't and some even incorrectly tell others that this is 
the 'correct' way of using mythfilldatabase!
