Yeah, sure I have to familiarise myself with this fact. But really, the effort 
made by by you compared to the author of the patch is rather small (or large, 
depending on how you look at it). So I'm only suggesting a lower level of 
remarks, when it comes to submitting patches like this. Also this applies 
sort of to my replies to Thor's commits, when he hardly (if any) provides any 
info about what actually got committed to CVS.

Again, I'm sorry about this, but I feel that some CVS standard is missing 
amongst the MythTV developers!
