Well, "yes". Take a look at how other 3rd party plugins are provided. At the
very least you should include some README file to describe the thing a bit
and an INSTALLING file to say people need to enter ./configure and (q)make
and that sort of things.
Also... tar + bzip2/gzip are the recommended compression methodes under Unix
(but I guess you meant to say that). Normaly you compress the directory, so
people can uncompress it without files getting scattered all over their home

Looks nice, keeps the same style as the rest of Myth.

My network config is maybe rather odd, I've got two 'broadband routers'
stringed together. My frontend upstairs is seperated by a NAT. So, does that
work with NAT's too?
