You are correct in that the backend actually has to be running in order
for mythweb to work, but my main concern was being able to run mythweb
on a computer that has no myth components installed, which is possible
so I am happy :).
Though it might be nice for it to give a limited functionality version
when the backend is not available. I guess this isn't a concern for
most people though as they run a backend 24/7, which I will eventually
as well. Not a big deal, like I said, I just didn't want to have apache
running on the backend.
