No bloat, the recorders are pretty small. The reason the DVB
recorder is disabled by default is simply because it requires
relatively up to date system headers to work properly, and no
one has written a script for ./configure to detect that all the
headers are up to date and in the right place. In 2-3 years we
should be able to enable DVB by default on Linux systems.
