I am beginning to agree with Peter, this should be part of the main 
mythtv repo. This is a driver or part thereof.

Its not C++ so cant go in the libs dir (or can it?) so another path 
should be chosen for the java class path chosen.

Questions to be answered:

1. should the manifest go there too?

2. all parts of platform source? or only the driver related bit(s)?

3. how to handle variations in libs?

4. The build system is part build and part packaging. Does this warrant 
splitting? Does this affect windows builds (OT maybe windows can rely on 
linux subsystem and not care about a specific windows build)

5. should it be rewritten so that it implements the functioanlity in C++ 
calling java where necessary as does the sles driver?

I will test and have a look at this tomorrow (I think).
