[mythtv] Stand-alone mythcommflag / transcode

Sitting here in my computer room, I realized that even with all the
myth-dedicated hardware in the room, the machines with the most
horsepower aren't even being used for myth. In the evening that's not
a big deal, since they are in use. However, late night and all
throughout the day, there's a lot more that could be done. All of us
have at least (1) windows box in our networks somewhere....
Which led me to thinking...
--- the WinMyth project seems to be doing fairly well
-- mysql support for Win32 is good
-- it's fair to say any codec available for linux is available on win32.
Has anyone given any thought to a stand-alone program on Win32 that
could check the job queue, and handle jobs, IE transcoding or
commercial flagging? JobQueueLite?
Foundational things like SMB access to a share containing the .nuv
files would be a preq, as would MySQL libraries, and installed codecs.
Heck, take it one step further. It would be great to have the same
thing for *nix. Right now you have to do a full install of mythbackend
just to get commercial flagging on a 2nd/3rd/etc machine.
Anyway, just kinda thinking out loud. At least in my case, I could add
3-4 more machines to my job queue, which would bring up some fun
