I hate to be a naysayer, but there is one big problem with selling things
commercially: support. What happens if someone buys a box and it doesn't
work with their setup (whatever that is)? How 'bout if zap2it decides to
break xmltv again?
I'm all in favor of a groovebox-esque predone system, simply because it
eliminates variables and makes startup easier. But widespread commercial
use could get... iffy.
