Except there's nothing wrong with the grabber. In the UK, movies are
called films. Any translation should surely be done in the client
application using the data.
One question I would ask is why the hack in question cannot be
re-enabled until a 'proper fix' is in place, even if it is hacky and
grabber-specific. It doesn't hurt anyone, and provides a benefit. How
is this not a good thing?
As a user, breaking functionality is annoying. Isaac has just stated
the majority of users have package-based installations - so unless
individual packagers are re-enabling this code before compilation and
packaging, UK users using the uk_rt grabber will have broken mythweb
and mythfrontend searches.
